The Salient Braves – Somewhere Sordid EP

salientbravesThe title and lead track on this EP will more than likely to be in my top 10 tracks of the year. Hell the rest of the EP is pretty fine too. It certainly is one of the strongest releases musically I have heard in 2013 coupled with intelligent and witty writing. There is even a decent cover of The Kinks Waterloo Sunset which may give you an idea behind some of main man Matt Bailey’s songwriting influences.

The label describes them as post C86 but I hear a bit of pre C86 in there too – post C81 then (this is getting complicated!). Anyway wherever they are are musically at is one thing. The other is that you should give them a listen right now , if nothing else just to prove that not all indiepop in the UK is stagnant and devoid of ideas.

Buy the CDR from Dufflecoat Records or digitally via Bandcamp.
