Sounds | Big|Brave - carvers, farriers and knaves

Een door merg en been snijdende (Björkiaanse) klaagzang boven een hypnotiserend en repetitief drumpatroon en een distorted gitaar die de onderbouw verzorgt. Dit is 'simpelweg' Big|Brave zoals we hen kennen. Meer valt hierover niet te zeggen ... vind ik toch.

nature morte verschijnt op 24 februari 2023 via Thrill Jockey Records.


Ter Info

Following the announcement of their monolithic new album nature morte, out February 24th, Canadian trio BIG|BRAVE has announced an extensive European tour for spring 2023. The tour includes performances at Roadburn Festival, Donaufestival and Desertfest, among others. The trio's first nature morte single "carvers, farriers and knaves" captures the album's striking balance between expansive atmospherics and direct emotional drive, guitar and vocals twisting atop thundering drums to create one of the most bracing and relentless pieces in the band's ouvre.

BIG|BRAVE are an elemental trio who harness an earthen heaviness composed of distorted and textural drones, austere bombast, and Wattie’s heart-rending voice. Like recent collaborators The Body, BIG|BRAVE is at the forefront of reconfiguring the landscape of heavy music. The trio brandish sparseness and density like weapons, cast tense atmospheres with languid tempos and mutate feedback into eruptions of enveloping tempests. nature morte sharpens BIG|BRAVE’s ferocity and expansive sound into emotional elegies for the disenfranchised, wringing abstracted textures and pure fervence into songs of unfathomable mass.
