The incredibly influential American magazine Rolling Stone has made The Joy Formidable its Band Of The Week.

The magazine says of the north Wales trio: "Loud, tuneful Nineties alt-rock. Though [singer Ritzy] Bryan says the group draw their inspiration from a wide range of music, the songs on their debut album The Big Roar (released yesterday in the U.K.; out March 15 in the U.S.) mostly recall that time in the mid-Nineties when female-fronted bands such as Hole, PJ Harvey, Veruca Salt and Elastica had a major presence on rock radio."

You can watch a video with Ritzy and Rhydian on this blog now.
