As One For The People quite rightly contend, the soils of the Australasian isles are becoming increasingly fertile – at least from a musical perspective. And riding high on this crest-like upward trend are Perth four-piece Braves, whose Sorrow EP interpolates oneiric pop proclivities in a nebulous lo-fi backdrop of dizzying guitar lines and giddy cymbals. It’s insouciant, and sporadically brattish (opener Sadko In The Underwater Kingdom sounds like Blink-182 reared on No Age and other such shitgaze) though its crowning moment is also its ultimate – the self-confessed heartbreak-pop of Hallows. A disorientating gust of melancholy and infinite reverb, it’s as though a slightly more shoegaze-y DIIV or a more woebegone Craft Spells, or something. And it’s unassumingly sublime, at that.
