Wonder Ballroom
128 NE Russell St.
 

[HEAVY ART POP] Taking the bombastic sound that marked its staggering and surprising debut, The Big Roar, and ratcheting up the musicianship and explosiveness to artful new levels, Welsh trio the Joy Formidable’s sophomore release, Wolf’s Law, sets a new bar for a band unfairly relegated to pop radio in the wake of its hit, “Whirring.” Here, double-bass pedals hammer down like thunder over wailing guitar hooks guided home by Ritzy Bryan’s ethereal vocals. On Wolf’s Law, the trio proves there’s no limit to the amount of sound a sparse outfit can emit, veering into Zeppelin territory with epic compositions that aren’t afraid to get metallic even when grounded in surefooted art-pop.
