Album Review: Brave Radar ‘Message Centre’


By: Rory Warnock

Brave Radar have returned, releasing their first album in 5 years. The eight song Message Centre EP will definitely not disappoint, drawing from classic 1960’s pop music elements while producing a sound that is distinct. The EP, which was recorded at home over a two-month period, takes a refreshing minimalist approach to pop music structures while incorporating other unique traits. Steady and compelling instrumentation accompany beautiful vocal harmonies that sing about a variety of topics including cars, nightmares and office life. Each track blends together in particular ways to offer something different while maintaining a light energy that is consistent through the entire album.

Message Centre is an EP that would be a welcome addition to anyones summer listening list because it captures the distinguishable essence of the season.

Released on Fixture Records, Brave Radar’s Message Centre can be streamed and purchased at braveradar.bandcamp.com
