My Silent Bravery are a Boston based band who already have gotten some fortune with radio stations and TV placements. They also have a long touring history of over 200 shows in two years and you can feel that when they play together.
With strong vocals and distorted guitars as their main recognizable characteristics, the music they play has the special gift of sounding unique, immediately recognizable and this is something very strong for a band. Their music is a mix of indie rock and electronic, suitable also for the European market. The sound is definitely American but I think that you can sense a touch of British pop in it. The opening song “Not necessarily so” is the strongest, with a riff that immediately sticks to your mind. Technically the musicianship is good, on their way to find the perfect sound, kind of locked in a nice groove dictated by guitars and synthesizers.
I would like to mention the good lyrics of the song "Comfort of the sideline" that describe the pain and confusion of the American people facing terrorism and war. They are raw and go straight to the point and they find the perfect way to reach our minds.
I bet their career will be a long and gratifying one.
