The Joy Formidable’s ‘Dance of the Lotus’ is erratic, atmospheric alternative rock with some electronic flair. These guys describe their music as, “a magical and lonely night-time walk in the desert when you’re trying to escape from yourself and the chaos you’ve created.” The coursing guitars that develop into beautifully unclear, reverb-drenched melodies are strong. Behind that, the ongoing use of electronics of various sorts to accent the composition works really well. On top of everything, some wispy, almost exasperated female vocals help solidify the track’s character. These guys really know what they’re doing. Check out ‘Dance of the Lotus’ below!
