Perth band Braves have put together this spring themed mixtape for your listening pleasure. Hit play and enjoy.
What Alex from Braves has to say…
“As far as i'm concerned, Australia's Spring is everyone else's Summer. September to November lie in that sweet spot where the skies are blue, but the sun doesn't seem less than a kilometre away. Some of my best memories of Summer were actually days in Spring I got confused about. Basically Spring's the best month we got, it's the Summer we deserve, and this playlist reflects that.
We're really directly inspired by guitar music more than anything else, we love bands that sound like they were more concerned with writing an excellent song than making sure the production was squeaky clean. There's early material from Cloud Nothings in here, back when he was still making sweet bratty jams exploring modern suburbia, as well as infectious garage pop from one of our favourite Perth bands, Thee Gold Blooms. There's my current favourite song from PAWS, the most American Scottish band you'll ever hear, and a track from the amazing (and sadly broken-up) Harlem.”
BRAVES just released their newest EP, Seapunk, which is a mish-mash of styles and sounds, but with a strong focus on hooks and catchiness above all. The EP is a pay what you want download on bandcamp right now, but you can stream the whole thing on our soundcloud too. https://brvs.bandcamp.com/album/seapunk
