With influences that include such greats as Arctic Monkeys, Kings of Leon, and Lou Reed, we knew when this email landed in our headquarters that we had to give these guys a listen.
Young Braves (they are certainly young, still teenagers) are Oliver Scott, Jakob Ferguson, Elliot Smith and Dan Byrne.
The band have had a tremendous year. Working hard doing local gigs and building an online presence has led to slots at festivals – “The Big Feastival” in particular – and support from their local radio, including “BBC Introducing”.
This all led to them supporting the Black Keys at the 02 Arena in Birmingham this February, sadly due to an injury to a member of the Black Keys, the show has been cancelled.
However, Ollie Scott sang backing vocals on Walk With Me which appears on the new Charlatans album Modern Nature (Deluxe Version).
Title track For The Day has a beautiful earthy video that was shot in the beautiful woodlands of Shropshire by Born Music and directed by AJ Davies.
