THE JOY FORMIDABLE W/ DARCYS AND RADKEY

THE JOY FORMIDABLE
When The Joy Formidable formed in North Wales in 2007, they drew heavily from shoegaze and noisy alt-rock to create the band’s signature sound. They began instantly building buzz in 2008, making appearances at several large British festivals and earning quick critical acclaim. Described by Rolling Stone as “wickedly bracing and Himalaya-huge,”� the dynamic live band faced the self-appointed challenge of ensuring their onstage energy and ability to connect with audiences translated via recording. Twelve months later, the band created a critically acclaimed album that has “musically and emotionally put them through the wringer,”” but with the huge payoff of the sonic boom people have come to expect from the trio.

RADKEY
Radkey does whatever they want. Whether it's hard and fast, or slow and groovy. Radkey does whatever they want, and that's what rock and roll is all about. You can hear it in the music and it makes you want to fucking party. Radkey doesn't cater to one sound by calling themselves a «Punk Band».

Radkey is: Dee, Isaiah and Solomon. Dee, the lead singer, guitarist and the oldest of the 3, has a powerful baritone voice, badass guitar solos and an equally powerful love for Japan.

Radkey all grew up in a shitty little pink house in St. Joseph, Missouri. Homeschooled. Bored with nothing to do but listen to their Father's records and start a band. Radkey is a rock band.

DARCYS
Alternative pop duo Darcys are Toronto’s ‘boys of summer’. Comprised of singer/multi-instrumentalist Jason Couse and drummer/lyricist Wes Marskell, the band has toured North America, Europe, and Australia, delivering close to half a dozen releases. Their latest studio album, Centrefold, is a bright, summery album with glossy production and airtight hooks. The album draws inspiration from classic 80’s icons and lands somewhere between Blade Runner and Bowie for a sun-bleached sound. Centrefold is a solid pop record worthy of global attention.
