The Joy Formidable Rock 'Whirring' on 'Conan'

Welsh band play 'Whirring' from their debut album

Recent Rolling Stone Band to Watch the Joy Formidable stopped by Conan last night to play "Whirring," a tuneful, dramatic number from the North Wales trio's debut album The Big Roar. As with most of their shows, the band decorated their gear with white lightbulbs that blinked on and off like twinkling cartoon stars. It's a nice touch, but frontwoman Ritzy Bryan's wide eyes and big voice is more than enough for a captivating television performance.
