The Brave are thrilled to announce they are heading out on a long awaited headline tour! Hitting the east coast in September, The Brave are also taking their new single “Ethereal” along for the ride too.
In a world that’s currently dominated by an appetite for self-destruction and greed, the longing for liberation on The Brave’s new single “Ethereal” is a timely one that doesn’t stray too far from reality. “Ethereal” premiered on triple j’s Good Nights and the new video can be viewed below.
Frontman Nathan Toussaint explains the concept behind “Ethereal”: “This is a story of a world that lost its way. Taken over by mindless and heartless beings, completely consumed by their own greed for power and hate. We took a totally different approach to writing ‘Ethereal’ not just musically but also lyrically. This really helped us to get a song that is quite different to our older work and is a real step forward to where we want to take our sound.”
That different approach? Taking their songs down to Melbourne earlier this year for a fine tuning session with Jon Deiley (Northlane) then heading off to record them with Sam Bassal (Ocean Grove). Working with Deiley and Bassal allowed The Brave to really separate themselves from the music and try different techniques that found a home on “Ethereal”, as well as herald in a new era for the band.
