The Joy Formidable

Within the last few years, the Joy Formidable have gone through some seismic changes: They started to break through as an in-demand rock band, they parted ways with a major label, and two of their core members ended their relationship. Amidst these personal and professional changes comes AARTH, the trio’s fourth studio album, which finds the band in an understandably reflective and occasionally cathartic mood. The title is a play on the Welsh word for “bear,” and that’s appropriate: The record is also a hulking, intimidating beast that keeps to itself before exploding with violence and fury.
