BRAVEYOUNG PREMIERE SOMBER & CINEMATIC NEW SONG
“Oh Love That Will Not Let Me Go” appears on Misery and Pride, out March 24th
Portland OR’s Braveyoung have returned with a new album of somber instrumentals entitled Misery and Pride. One of the record’s finest songs, “Oh Love That Will Not Let Me Go” is streaming today on CLRVYNT. The website said it “…feels both modern and classical in the same breath, and, most refreshing of all, it fails to follow any contemporary trends in music. Braveyoung, simply put, are Braveyoung — and Misery and Pride is perhaps the purest representation of that to be witnessed.”
Formed as a duo in 2005 by brothers Zac and Isaac Jones, Braveyoung released their first album the following year under the name Giant. They soon changed their name and began working with Michael Rich. As a trio they spent the next several years exploring new sounds and touring extensively. They attracted the attention of The End Records, who released the Bloom EP in 2009 and their first full-length album We Are Lonely Animals in 2011. The same year saw the release of a collaborative effort with weirdo heavy music stalwarts The Body, then the relocation of the band to Portland Oregon. Never abandoning their DIY ethos, the ensuing years saw the release of several more EPs, live performances and eventually the recording of Misery and Pride.
While arranging details for the release, founding member Isaac Jones was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident. He has since recovered, and Braveyoung are eager for their long-awaited second album to see the light of day. Misery and Pride unfolds like an ominous premonition of the turbulent years since its completion and will be released on March 24th by The Flenser.
