Earlier this spring Emmett, Mark, Podge and Ross teamed up with one of Ireland’s most respected musicians and producers Gavin Glass of Orphan Recording, to record this debut long play which sees a slight change in direction for the band. A sound Gavin (producer) affectionately refers to as… “It’s like David Guetta meets The War On Drugs”.
Podge (lead singer) says, “If you have already streamed or bought a copy, get in touch and let us know what you think. What is your favourite song?"
Emmett (percussion) continues, “We’ve explored new sounds and have drawn on influences from even more musical genres. Heavy synths, spacey guitars, driving drums and a mandolin like you’ve never heard before. The core elements which make Brave Giant what it is are still there, we’ve just added some magic, we hope!”
Peter Ashmore joined Gavin Glass on recording duties at Orphan Recording and Hellfire Studios in the picturesque Dublin mountains. Additional production is by Brave Giant’s own Emmett Collum, the record is mastered by Stephen Ceresia at Stonyfield Mastering and sublime artwork is by Mark Corry.
Emmett Collum (percussion), Mark Prunty (bass, guitar/vocals), Podge Gill (guitar/vocals),
Ross McNerney (banjo/mandolin/keys), are Brave Giant. A band rooted in an inherited love for trad & folk, moulded, morphed and inspired by indie & alternative influences. Based in Longford the band released its first commercial track in April 2016, the hugely popular Lordy Lordy.
In just three years, Brave Giant has gone from selling out two nights Upstairs at Whelans Live, Dublin to the band’s biggest headline show to date at The Olympia Theatre, Dublin on Saturday November 9th, also going to sell out. Get your tickets fast, there are only a few remaining.
The band has also seen it’s Spotify streams grow to over 2.5 million during the last year, and online video views in the same region.
The first single Decorate Your Mind, was described by Hot Press as “a powerhouse of a track, as anthemic and propulsive as it is dark and atmospheric.”
Of the current single, Wizards and Witches, Hot Press said “An inspiring, cascading indie-rock song,” and the publication has given the album White Pint + Blue an 8******** (star) rating too!
