The Brave – Ethereal (Track Of The Day, 3rd August)

Brisbane five piece The Brave have just released a brand new track and video: “Ethereal”, and I am in love. The Brave are Nathan Toussaint (vocals), Kurt Thomson (guitar), Daniel Neucom (bass), David Mead (guitar) and Brent Thomson (drums).

At first “Ethereal” is a sweet blend of massiveness and tender vocals. The vibe is searching and questioning.

“These hollow vessels of the dark
Will never win at all
Will never win at all
We are the sparks that light up the sky

We are ethereal”

The second verse gains desperation in expressing a need to focus on what’s important; the truth. The choruses are anthemic battlecries against heavier forces that threaten to crush or defeat us, asking us to hold strong.

The imagery of the music video supports the same message, breaking free of things that would hold us back or stuck, keeping focus on where we want to go and never letting go of that.

Brilliant track and the sweet riffs are a standout along with the atmospheric piercing vocals. Check out “Ethereal”.. AND get hyped because The Brave have announced The Ethereal tour, supported by Stepson and Thornhill. Details below.
