The Joy Formidable release a Popinjay

We're excited to announce new single 'Popinjay' from the scintillating Joy Formidable. Out immediately as a digital download, a limited run of 500 7" vinyls will be available from April 5th. Having spent 2009 touring with the likes of Passion Pit, Temper Trap and Editors, alongside extensive headline show throughout the UK and Europe, the band ended the year in the studio recording their forthcoming debut album. Currently being mastered ahead of a mid-summer release, 'Popinjay' is the first track to be heard from it.

Melding Ritzy Bryan’s vocals to a gargantuan guitar hook and a wall of noise and melody that is rapidly becoming the band’s signature sound, 'Popinjay' comes backed by a stunning animated video. In support of the release the band will be heading out on a full UK tour, with support coming from their good friends Baddies.
