PREMIERE: New Joy Formidable Video

The Joy Formidable's Ritzy Bryan in "Austere"
Peter Gaston

The Joy Formidable's recent acoustic performance at SPIN's NYC office only got us more excited for March's The Big Roar, the Welsh indie rock trio's debut album. Now, they're unveiling a new music video for album track "Austere." Watch it below.

The clip has a Warhol-like visual aesthetic, displaying pastel-hued parts of the band members' bodies, like lips, eyes, shoes, and hair, against a stark white backdrop. But as the driving song unfolds, its thick guitar riffage building, more and more of the trio is revealed.

Watch the clip here, and scroll a bit further down to see their acoustic version of "Austere," recorded at SPIN.
