In August, The Joy Formidable released their album “Into The Blue“. The band present “Back To Nothing“, the second pre-release single. The song reflects on where you’ve been and how grief can heal and illuminate the future. Singer-guitarist Ritzy Bryan says, “Back To Nothing takes a stance on self-compassion, realizing your worth and your boundaries and deciding not to give your love to an undeserving other.”

Gazing upon love, new beginnings, and unexpected magic, “Into the Blue” was initially written in Wales, and later fleshed out once the band returned to Utah, the perfect setting to release the emotional baggage of their fifth album. Without addressing political or social commentary, The Joy Formidable digs into the effects of manipulation and regaining control. You see me for what I am / I don’t have to guess any more sings Rhiannon “Ritzy” Bryan, splitting vocals with Rhydian Dafydd building around the unexpected of the title track, and picks up on growling “Chimes” and the siren-charged crunch of “Sevier.” “Into the Blue” rides the dramatic waves of pain, regret, and those magical sweet hereafters of life.

After releasing “Into The Blue,” The Joy Formidable have now announced their new album (also called Into The Blue and due August 20 via Enci Records) and shared its second single, “Back To Nothing.” It’s a catchy indie rock song that’s as ethereal as it is anthemic.
