Brave Bird

Self-described as the "frat boys of emo", "plop plunk" and "the boy geniuses of emo", Brave Bird of Ann Arbor, Michigan seem as if they are just another run-of-the-mill emo revival band: melodic "twinklecore" guitars, urgent Brand New-reminiscent vocals, confessional lyrics, and they're signed to Count Your Lucky Stars Records.

Self-described as the "frat boys of emo", "plop plunk" and "the boy geniuses of emo", Brave Bird of Ann Arbor, Michigan seem as if they are just another run-of-the-mill emo revival band: melodic "twinklecore" guitars, urgent Brand New-reminiscent vocals, confessional lyrics, and they're signed to Count Your Lucky Stars Records. Consisting of frontman/lead guitarist Chris Lieu, bassist Mike Politowicz, drummer Mark (last name unknown) and the recently added second guitarist Matt Terrigan, the band's sound actually entails characteristics that are far less predictable than one would think. Their sprawling, complexly finger-picked guitars; driving punk grooves; and innate sense of innovation with song structure make for a compelling experience in emo music that somehow yields a definitively pop appeal but bleeds originality and a forward-thinking mentality. From fast-paced, catchy chorus anthems to post-rock-meets-pop-punk slow burners, Brave Bird have contained their refreshing, individual sound in the demo EP Ready or Not, released in 2010, which was followed up much later with their debut album Maybe You, No One Else Worth It in 2013. With their sophomore record already written long before the end of 2013, Brave Bird are set to release T-Minus Grand Gesture in 2014 as they continue playing shows alongside the likes of Dowsing, Dads, Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate), The Hotelier and many more. « hide
