Take a simple and groovesome riff, underpin it with a confident, direct beat and a bass line that is content to drive rather than deviate into showboatery. Throw in a guitar solo that serves the song rather than the ego and top it all off with a vocal that is warm and evocative.
Simple, down the line, spacious rock ‘n’ roll will sell itself every time and this is as good as it gets in that department. Simple? Perhaps. Effective? Certainly. Great? Without a shadow of a doubt.
the great State of New Jersey houses some of the most eclectic musicians to touch the surface of Rock music and it starts with the newest heatwave of rock from the band, Sunday Brave, with their irresistible new single ‘Taking Over’ and they really are taking over!
The EP is direct, fleshing out dense guitar tones that are harmonized in overdrive and forcefulness. Like half of the songs on the EP feel supersized, emphasizing the band’s powerful collaboration to piece a project that embodies vibrant energies.
As a lead single off the album with the same title, Taking Over is a well-crafted rock song that is organically charming and a perfect example of Sunday Brave’s creativity. It opens with a strong electric guitar riff that breathes the same air as that of the 70’s rock classic era. -warlockasyluminternationalnews.com|
Sunday Brave is a band with a great mix of musicians who have backgrounds inspired by almost every genre.
On their new EP "Taking Over" they've created deep solid rock tunes with dynamic melodies that will move your head and hum the guitar licks and boom of the bass for a while.
The founding members of Sunday Brave are KC Gonzalez and John Warnet, who have known each other for over 10 years. During that time there's always been the desire to put KC's brilliant writing styles to good use since the two always clicked musically. Finally in the middle of 2011 they agreed to collaborate and form a band. Amazingly with only a few auditions they were able to quickly implement the talent needed to get things going and after only four months, the band was in the studio laying down the tracks for their debut release "Leads To Another". Fast forward three years... KC and John are now joined by two new powerful and energetic members: Clauzenei Santos on bass, Marcelo Buby on lead guitar.
