NAMED ONE OF # Rolling Stone's 10 Artiste to Watch / Spin Magazine's ※Next Big Things§ for 2005 / Voted #1 ※Most Promising Act of 2005 by The BBC's Sound of Music 2005 Music Poll / Village Voice's ※Next Official Big Thing§
※Call it rock with a New Wave edge or New Wave with a rock edge 每 The Bravery's music is darkly danceable and eminently catchy.§ 每 Rolling Stone
※What do you get when you cross The Strokes with The Killers? Something a lot like The Bravery, a thrusting, pouting New York based group whose synthesizer laced rock and just-got-out-of-bed vocals are so 2005 it hurts.§ 每 NME
※On &Honest Mistake,' NYC post-punk sensations The Bravery add new-wave synths to gritty grooves for a retro sound that's catchier than Interpol#§ 每 Entertainment Weekly
※Synth rock that floats like the Cure but stings like the Clash§ 每 SPIN Magazine
※Flashy local band The Bravery, whose keyboards sound like they were lifted straight from the practice rooms of every 80's band you ever loved, is about to blow up#§ 每 Times Out New York
※Put the Cure, the Killers and a few male models in a juicer and you'll be drinking the sweet punch of The Bravery.§ - Blender
※What got record labels interested is that we had sex with at least one girl who worked at every label.§ 每 Anthony Burulcich (Drummer)
The punchy modern rock outfit the Bravery features Sam Endicott (vocals/guitar), John Conway (Keyboards), Anthony Burulcich (Drums), Michael Zakarin (Guitar), and Mike Hindert (bass). He New York five-piece got its start in early 2003. After playing its first gig at the Stinger Club in Brooklyn in mid-summer, the Bravery's post-punk-influenced dance rock was all the rage.
Critics almost immediately trounced on the band. The Village Voice proclaimed the Bravery to be ※ New York 's Official Next Big Thing§ while MTV and Rolling Stone hailed them as an artist to watch. A co-headlining tour with Ash in the U.S in spring 2005 coincided the release of the Bravery's self-titled album- MacKenzie Wilson, All Music Guide.
※The name is also connected with living in New York in this really weird time. People are constantly waiting for something bad to happen. I wrote these songs and formed this band to make sure I didn't get overcome by that sense of fear. That's what this band is about 每 standing tall and not being afraid§. Sam
One thing that sometimes puzzles people about the Bravery is why they sound electronic when all the bands they like are punk guitar bands.
Sam doesn't know why they sound like they do. He just wanted to do something different. Of course, the circumstances in which they recorder their album (most of which was constructed in a Sam's bedroom with Radio Shack mike and an old iMac) and the fact that Sam's best friend John Conway is totally obsessed with analog keyboards obviously helped shape their sound.
Less than six months later, The Bravery is one of NYC's most prominent up-and-coming bands. They have just finished a full-length record and are preparing for a May residency at the Lower East Side 's Arlene Grocery.
Catch the bravery and electrico LIVE and LOUD in Singapore .
