Prior to taking the stage at Schubas on Tuesday night, members of The Joy Formidable were kind enough to sit down and chat with me for a bit. The impression I got from our talk, both on and off-camera, was of a band happy to be making music together and that genuinely likes each other. (Rhydian and Ritzy are a couple outside of the band, so I would hope that’s the case).
Topics include: Recording at home, their move from North Wales to London and being cooler than Jay-Z.
- Check out my review of their album, A Balloon Called Moaning.
