The Leopard And The Lung
Oh, yeah, this is what alternative rock sounds like! The Joy Formidable roar through their sophomore album with the grand and epic intensity of vintage Smashing Pumpkins. And since 20 years have passed since the release of Siamese Dream, it's about time that cinematic dream-pop plumped up with thundering layers of guitar, rumbling beats and orchestral strings made its return. But this time it's a searing songstress steering it all: Ritzy Bryan is part prog-metal queen ("Maw Maw Song"), part sweet balladeer ("Silent Treatment"), all effortlessly cool rock chick ("Little Blimp").
