Welsh alt-rock band The Joy Formidable have unleashed their new single “The Hat” and its accompanying video.
Speaking about it, singer Ritzy Bryan says: “I feel like your own inner reflections can take on a sensation like being in space, alone in the gravity of your own uncertainty, drifting and off balance but aware of how beautiful and extraordinary life is. This new song has that sensation of being transported but also moving forward, a nod to the new aperiodic tile that never repeats and your own vow to ‘never make the same mistake twice.'”
Watch the Matt Thomas-directed video below.
Comprised of lead vocalist/guitarist Ritzy Bryan, bassist/vocalist Rhydian Dafydd and drummer Matt Thomas, The Joy Formidable are originally from North Wales and currently split their time between there and Utah, “in the middle of nowhere” and the closest thing they could find in the USA to their home turf. Nevertheless, they have remained close to their loyal fanbase and launched TJF Music Club in 2019, with members able to request Backstage access, watch online shows and get exclusive songs and merchandise. It grew and evolved during the subsequent pandemic.
