New(ish) Music From Joy Formidable

A while back, I brought you guys a tune/free album download from this Welsh band Joy Formidable.  I’m now reading online that the band recently signed to new record label Black Bell Records which was just created by Passion Pit’s Ayad Al Adhamy.  In May the new label plans to finally get a U.S. release for Joy Formidable’s 8 song EP A Balloon Called Moaning which was previously only available internationally.  I downloaded that EP when it was free last year and have recently been finding myself drawn more and more to the bands atmospheric fuzz pop sound.  Below you can find a sample of that sound in the form of a free song the band is offering up to grow some publicity for their upcoming release.  The future looks bright for this 3 piece.
