THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Into The Blue follows The Joy Formidable’s critically acclaimed, kaleidoscopic 2018 album AAARTH. It arrives into a much different world, and births a new energy for the band, who understand that even during the worst times, music will find ways to inspire and thrive.

Into The Blue is about surrendering to love and magic. Having the courage to enjoy a new journey. Embracing the mystery and excitement of something unexpected. The band says, “It’s about opening your eyes to beauty and love again. Making it to the other side. Whilst not conceived as a metaphor for the times we all live in now, it certainly turned out that way.”

Rhiannon (Ritzy) Bryan & Rhydian Dafydd grew up together in North Wales before forming The Joy Formidable in 2011. Soon joined by drummer Mr. Matt Thomas, they have enjoyed an eclectic decade together creating a legacy that spans genres & celebrates their Welsh culture. Today they split their time between North Wales and the closest thing they could find in the U.S. — “the middle of nowhere” in Utah.”
