Childhood friends Ritzy Bryan and bassist Rhydian Dafydd originally played together as part of Manchester band Tricky Nixon, which later reformed into Sidecar Kisses. After Sidecar Kisses split up in 2007 they regrouped, returning to their Welsh home town of Mold, and formed The Joy Formidable with Justin Stahley on drums. In July 2008 they released their first official single, “Austere”, followed by a Christmas single, “My Beerdrunk Soul Is Sadder than a Hundred Dead Christmas Trees”, as a 2008 digital download, and the “Cradle” double 7″ in 2009. In January 2009 their self-released debut EP, A Balloon Called Moaning, was issued in the UK.
