The Joy Formidable - Austere

The song is 2 1/2 years old but it gets re-released this week in the UK. Nice catchy buzzy single. Not sure why its taken so long for a major to release it. You can see our earlier review of their second single Cradle (and video) in February 2009 if you look back in the archives.
