"sometimes-ambient, sometimes-arena rock music"
---ALTERNATIVE PRESS [UNSIGNED BAND OF THE MONTH, May 2008]
California's BRAVE CITIZENS have officially begun the summer of REVOLUTIONS. As critical acclaim for their debut release continues to mount, the band has announced that the EP is available on iTunes now for only $3.96.
See some early critical praise of REVOLUTIONS:
"Amazing music...stirs your emotions"
"This undeniably handsome (man crush!) duo churns out moody, dark, indie pop that's hard to dislike. Slightly dancy, slightly naughty and very good; Revolutions is all these things. Clear your bellies and allow me to cram Brave Citizens down your throat. In a good way, of course...This album comes with just about my highest recommendation" (88/100)
"Beginning with the very first notes on "The Same Way," the opening track on Brave Citizens' debut EP, Revolutions, all four masterfully crafted songs pull you in and refuse to let you go. Comparisons to Mute Math's soaring sound and Mew's haunting melodies, while accurately drawn, don't even begin to fully capture this SoCal duo's powerful draw. These songs were born to fill stadiums. The deliciously dark, gritty guitars on "How Much Longer?" are particularly notable, as are Adam Capra's vocals throughout every offering." (4/5)
- The Owl Mag
"...great, catchy edgy rock songs that is a complete rarity these days"
- Subversive Productions Blog
"The result of all these sensations and the devotion of a duo made in heaven is REVOLUTIONS; a diamond in the rough" (4/5 stars)
"...dances around in the space where Interpol doesn't exactly end and A.F.I. hasn't exactly started...I enjoyed it immensely"
- Independent Clauses Magazine
"After the digital release of its stadium rock-filled EP 'Revolutions,' Brave Citizens has gained the attention of students and blogs around the nation."
- New University
"[The band] have been catching the eyes and ears of publications nationwide...the lyrics are soulful and full of life"
- Trash The Stage
