Video of the Day: The Joy Formidable

Share this post

If there’s one thing about The Joy Formidable that might meet with universal agreement, it’s that the 3-piece from Wales (now based in London) is known for frenetic live performances that are at times dizzying. And now, as they support their latest record — Wolf’s Law — they have found a way to recreate that dizzying effect for the general public: by attaching a camera onto the end of Ritzy Bryan‘s guitar.  Don’t say you weren’t warned.

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
