THE BREVET
THE BREVET
One listen and it’s immediately clear that The Brevet have undergone a dramatic evolution on their explosive, ambitious new album, LEGS. Synthesizing the raucous energy of their live show with sonic precision of their extensive studio history, the collection is the California five-piece’s most deeply personal and lyrically sophisticated yet, tackling perception and identity in the digital age with both subtle nuance and blunt force. The songs remain as cinematic as ever, full of rousing choruses and sing-along hooks, but they carry more weight here, propelled inexorably forward by thunderous percussion and blazing electric guitars that blend rock and roll snarl with R&B swagger.

The Brevet’s roots stretch back to college, when frontman Aric Chase Damm first began writing scores for student films and discovered he had a knack for crafting the kind of evocative music that yields unforgettable on-screen moments. Those early songs led to a licensing deal, and tracks from the band’s two independent albums (2013’s Battle of the Heart and 2017’s American Novel) would go on to be featured in a wide variety of films and television shows in addition to racking up more than nine million streams on Spotify.

With all of The Brevet’s success on-screen and online, the group—Damm, drummer David Aguiar, guitarist John Kingsley, and bassist Julian Johnson—was more than ready to get out of the studio and onto the stage. Over the course of the last year, they hit the road for the most intense touring of their career, performing a slew of headline shows alongside support dates with Magic Giant and festival appearances from BottleRock to Firefly.

Recorded at the band’s own studio in their native Orange County, California, LEGS insists on a relentless optimism, a defiant belief in the power of positivity in the face of darkness and doubt. The album’s title actually stands for “Like Every Great Story,” and the record indeed contains all the elements of any memorable tale: struggle and success, tension and release, conflict and resolution. Every great story has a hero, after all, and heroes never give up, even when the going gets tough. That’s what The Brevet is all about.

Taking a multi-instrumental approach, Atlanta-born sister trio, VON GREY, delivers cinematic, ethereal, and imagery laden alternative anthems soaked in rich pop hooks. By drawing from the mysticism and the complexities of the human experience, VON GREY blends classical instrumentation, three part harmony, dark synths, and provoking lyrics to strike a delicate balance between the divine and the carnal.

After playing nearly 500+ shows, including late night appearances on David Letterman & Conan O’Brien, VON GREY took a calculated hiatus in late 2015 to begin writing / recording material for their forthcoming release.

The EP's lead single, "Poison In The Water", was released in April 2017 and garnered attention from numerous tastemakers, including Indie Shuffle who likened the new sound to, "a darker, Lana Del Rey-influenced HAIM," adding, "VON GREY's latest is spellbinding."
The follow-up single, "6AM", premiered on NPR All Songs Considered in late June, accompanied by the headline, "ethereal and catchy don't often make a perfect pair within pop music, but the combination is exactly what hooked me on VON GREY."

The band's 6-song EP, Trinity, was released December 8, 2017.
