Review: The Joy Formidable - "This Ladder Is Ours"

The Joy Formidable This Ladder Is Ours

Perhaps the best of the three new songs we've heard from the forthcoming Joy Formidable album, "This Ladder Is Ours" captures the high-octane, arena-ready sound found on Big Roar tracks such as "Whirring", "Austere" and "The Greatest Light Is The Greatest Shade" and at times the substance. However, like the two previously released Wolf's Law cuts, this number is missing the spark that makes repeat listens something of interest. Maybe "watered-down" is not the best term to describe the Welsh trio's new singles, but it's probably not far from the mark.
