The Joy Formidable
Off the Avenue, presented by Consequence of Sound, is a performance-based video series shot live at North Avenue Studios in Orange City, FL. For our most recent episode, we welcomed UK's The Joy Formidable, who unplugged their arena-ready rock for acoustic takes on The Big Roar's "Whirring" and Wolf's Law's "Cholla".
Also be sure to check out recent Off the Avenue sessions with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, The Cave Singers, Mount Moriah, El-P, YACHT, Here We Go Magic, Cursive, Heartless Bastards, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Helio Sequence, Minus the Bear, Astronautalis, and more.
And in case you missed it, grab yourself a copy of the first compilation from Off the Avenue, which features various recordings from these sessions, including many of the above plus Man Man, Hundred Waters, Roadkill Ghost Choir, and more.
The Joy Formidable is a Welsh alternative rock band, formed in 2007 in Mold, Flintshire, and currently based in London, England. The band consists of Rhiannon "Ritzy" Bryan (lead vocals, guitar), Rhydian Dafydd (bass, vocals) and Matthew James Thomas (drums, percussion).
