Braeves co-headline TuneCore event at Living Room on 08.19 with mysterious guest

Braeves, a NYC based indie pop band that made it into our most recent list of "Best of NYC Emerging Artists," will be co-headlining an event organized by TuneCore, a popular platform that supports emerging bands with services like distribution and publishing. This past June the band released a mellow new single entitled 'Silver Streets,' streaming below, that highlights their melodic talent and nostalgic tendencies. The show, scheduled for Wednesday August 19 at Williamsburg's The Living Room, will also see performances by a yet to be announced, mysterious headliner, and by New Jersery based indie pop-punk outfit 18th & Addison and NY native DJ/producer Matt FX

BRAEVES release new single 'Silver Streets' + play with Good Graeff at Cameo on 07.11

Crooning since '09, BRAEVES' frontman Ryan Colt Levy lays the foundation for Long Island's best (and only?) soul-indie act. Their onerously-rendered EP, 'Drifting by Design,' was produced by Minuteman Mike Watts, who also assisted As Tall As Lions recently. 'Drifting' rides a similar soft beat (boy!) that let's you, like Dobie Gray, drift away. The band just released a new single entitled "Silver Streets" (streaming below) and they are playing Cameo Gallery on July 11th with Good Graeff, who are coming off a national tour with Mates of State and Hey Marseilles. - Brian Chidester

Seen live: LI's Indie Poppers BRAEVES sell out Pianos

When you go to see a band live for the first time, it is normal to expect them to sound like a better or (often) worse version of their "digital streaming" selves: in the case of Long Island's BRAEVES (who coincidentially just qualified for out Best of NYC Year End Poll), this identity can be described as your "regular" melodic indie pop band. But a live show can quickly affect your preconceptions. Opening song ‘Guest of the Gun’ instantly hit us with a noteworthy emotional impact: the young band kept hanging on to that quality throughout the show; their stage presence and competent performance gave their songs an added strength, and the crowd of a sold out Pianos certainly helped create the perfect atmosphere. As they played “Talk like Strangers” (streaming), I was thinking about the tough week France had, especially my dear Paris (yes, that's where I hail from), and then everything flew away for a while - which is exactly what I needed. The band's melodies, full of emotions, are supported by Ryan Colt Levy's clean, perfectly "pop" vocals. The crowd’s applause signaling the end of the show brought me back to earth, which suddenly felt like a better place. Isn't that what pop music is for? - Maylis Personnaz
