Watch: 'Liana' by The Joy Formidable

List All News - Back
The Joy Formidable have just released a new digital EP entitled ‘Sleep Is Day’, which features ‘Liana’ (from their current album, ‘Hitch) plus 6 acoustic songs.

Singer Ritzy Bryan explains that “we had some beautiful live recordings of tracks from ‘Hitch’ that we’d done acoustically, I think they were the building blocks of this EP. Then things got dangerous when we started dabbling with a few covers.”

‘Sleep Is Day’ pays homage to David Bowie, the Misfits reunion and TJF’s current tour buddies, the South African four piece KONGOS. Currently on the road together in North America, Ritzy hints that early 2017 could bring an acoustic tour. “We’re planning on taking a show on the road that’s very intimate and features some great guest performers.”

‘Liana’ has also inspired a brand new charity project via Pledge with all profits being donated to SOS, the Sumatran Orangutan Society.

The accompanying video for ‘Liana’ takes the viewer on a journey through tropical rainforests and all its inhabitants. It reminds us how we are all connected, how the “forest of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another.”
