I’m so stoked to premiere brand new music from Toronto band Bravestation on the blog today. As you can tell from my years covering the band, I’m big fan of the group and truly believe they’re a hidden gem in our overcrowded music industry.
The trio will be releasing their first single of 2016 tomorrow and will be celebrating with a single release party at the Gladstone Hotel that night. “Amadeus”, which I’ve got an exclusive advance stream of (below), is just the first of four new tracks to be released this year, demonstrating a bolder, bigger sound than previous albums.
Check it out (for fans of St. Lucia, Young Empires).
Brothers Devin and Derek Wilson formed Bravestation with childhood friend Jeremy Rossetti in the City of the 1000 Islands before relocating to Toronto. Their name is merged from the titles of Aldous Huxley’s dystopian novel Brave New World and Robert J. Hasting’s inspirational essay The Station.
With influences ranging from 80s new wave to electronic dance music, post-punk and rock, the band channels sounds from the past and visions of the future to create their own version of dream-like pop.
