The Joy Formidable - “The Greatest Light Is The Greatest Shade

I recently got my hands on The Joy Formidable’s 2009 release, A Balloon Called Moaning. This is the opening track off the album and does a great job at setting the tone for the rest of the songs that follow. Consisting of atmospheric, yet slightly fuzzy indie pop, each track on this album is filled with ear-catching hooks that balance the right amount of grit and polish. Other favorites include “Cradle”, “Whirring”, and “The Last Drop.”
