Emerging/unsigned Australian synth-noir duo We Are The Brave has been attracting impressive international blog attention lately, following the release of their recent single/video, Sparrow, from debut EP Noctua. They now release follow up single, Your Ghost, with a video (shot by James Chappell) to follow imminently.
Featuring warm, '80s/’90s flavoured synths, moody guitar licks, and Jess Chalker's emotive vocal at the fore, Your Ghost was written/produced/recorded/mixed by We Are The Brave from their respective studios. It also features Grammy-winner William Bowden (Gotye's Making Mirrors) on mastering duties.
Local blogs and outlets across the pond have jumped on board to praise Your Ghost, calling it ‘addictive’, ‘accomplished’ and ‘sophisticated’. At the same time, critics have heralded We Are The Brave as an exciting new act to emerge from Australia’s fertile indie music scene.
Your Ghost precedes We Are The Brave’s second EP, due later in the year, as well as a remix package, out soon in collaboration with NYC's Kid Recordings.
Written, recorded, produced, engineered & mixed by: We Are The Brave
Mastering: William Bowden
(Special thanks also to Ben Le Bruce (Clubfeet) for lending us your ears/perspective in the mixing stage, when our ears had gone to shit. You're a champion.)
"dreamy and addictive" - Culture Collide
“a pop tune of some sophistication that sounds a bit like Running Up That Hill by Kate Bush re-imagined for the disco" - Breaking More Waves
“disco wrapped in huge swathes of melancholy. You’re dancing. But tears are falling. Icy drums and shards of synth float around Jess Chalker’s emotive vocal. It’s an intense few minutes.” - When the Gramophone Rings
“Your Ghost is an accomplished piece of work…. it's the type of music Kate Bush would be making, if she was still making hits!" - Indie Shuffle
"Channeling similar-sounding acts like Florence and the Machine, Bat For Lashes, and MS MR, the duo's songs expertly ride the line between the past and the expansive future horizons...we wouldn't be surprised to find them gaining a foothold right here in the U.S. very, very soon." - MTV Buzzworthy
"...all the hallmarks of a Bat For Lashes or Ladyhawke track...the sound of a mid-eighties classic" - Your Music Radar
“Jess Chalker and (Ox Why) interweave the refreshing bluish crush renowned of Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith with a breezy contemporary aesthetic to ensure it transcends time” – Dots and Dashes, UK
“Vibes, along with synths and a dreamy guitar, flow right in and out of this song. It's like a dancing ray of sunshine. “ – on Sparrow (Culture Fires remix). Thump/Vice (global premiere)
