Continued: Joy Formidable returns stronger and louder than ever

Even with all the strong new offerings, the Joy Formidable’s live showpiece remains its aptly named breakthrough single, “Whirring,”which gets stretched out and amped up on stage. It’s one of those spine-buzzing thrills that makes you wonder whether the trio is as fulfilled playing it night-to-night as audiences are in hearing it.

“Yes, absolutely,” Dafydd confirmed. “We keep that one spontaneous, for ourselves as much as everyone else.”

Said Bryan, “We come off the stage a lot of times feeling bemused by what went down in that song. We discover new things a lot of times in the release of that adrenaline.”

It’s as good for them as it is for us, in other words.
