With The Big Roar, the Joy Formidable revisits this sound, but with a different and more introspective and reflective feel. The album was obviously recorded at different times, almost as if the band were trying to shake off the cobwebs of touring and creating an album that represented who they were at the time. The album is a concept album, with tracks focusing on different characters. The album starts with the story of a young girl and then branches out to a mysterious woman with an unknown past. The music is decidedly gloomy, reflecting the mood of the artist. The album is a very personal and introspective record that may come off as a bit over-produced and uninteresting to some. Perhaps it’s the first step towards a more pop-punk style of music, but the band has yet to fully commit to that sound.
Ritzy Bryan discusses The Big Roar in an exclusive interview with Uncut in the newest issue. The band expressed that they were very happy with the record, but were surprised that many people didn’t like it. The band has had to put their feelings aside in order to evolve. Bryan had this to say,
The MATLAB environment is based on the MathWorks MATLAB® Compiler, or MMC, which is a proprietary language developed by MathWorks to facilitate the building of applications. MMC understands the MATLAB language and various task APIs and provides efficient intermediate language compilers for compiling functions and scripts.
The MATLAB® Engine is the core of the MATLAB product. It compiles, executes, and interprets MATLAB scripts and programs, as well as runs the M-files and M-links created by the MMC. It also allows the exchange of data between MATLAB applications, the MathWorks M-files and M-links, and other programming languages, including C, C++, and Visual Basic. 827ec27edc
