For awhile, news of a new LP from the Salient Braves has been floating about. Now we’ve got a release date and a new song for you to start planning your purchase. This song is built on the back of a piano, incorporating the pleasant croon of the vocals to further the band’s brilliant use of melody. As the song moves on, touches of strings are added to the layers, building towards a more pronounced ending for the track. Their new records is titled Delusions of Grandeur, and it’s being released by Broken Down Records on September 22nd.
It’s really great to wake up in the morning to your favorite acts; first I had the Bats, and now this delightful tune from The Salient Braves. I love the way this tune just opens up, vocals delivered in a matter-of-fact style, dancing over the guitar lines whilst there’s a tinkering keyboard in the background. There’s a countering voice that offers the chorus to you, which has an angelic tone to it to bring in some contrast. This is one of those songs that makes me wish I was British; they have something in their delivery that seems more poetic. You’ll hear this song on the band Guilty Until Proven Innocent EP, which comes out on November 25th via Broken Down Records.
It’s been a few years since we’ve been able to bring you anything new from The Salient Braves, but I’m sitting here smiling, letting the band’s indiepop vibes wash over me this morning. They’re set to release their new EP, They Must Have Seen Me Coming next week, and they’ve tossed us a few tracks to help encourage your listening. The EP’s title track has that traditional indiepop sound, ringing guitars circling the song’s central melody. They take a more casual approach on the second track offered, settling into the groove of the song immediately while you wait for the warm of the melodies to sing up in the track’s mix. Look for the EP next Friday via Broken Down Records.
