Bravestation Release Beautiful New EP 'V'

It was five years ago that I first stumbled across self-described apocalypse-pop outfit Bravestation, and watched intently as they found their bearings in Toronto's crowded market of up-and-coming indie acts. Experimenting with everything from bedroom pop to cover songs and dreamy new wave, all of their persistence and eventual signing to Culvert Music has led to this - the band's most accessible, cohesive project yet.

On Friday, the morning after the live unveiling of their new EP to The Drake Underground's crowd (who were also there to hear Young Empires' debut played in full), the Brockville-bred trio dropped V, a four-song follow-up to their first two EPs, Giants and Dreamers (2012) and IV (2013). While V dabbles in both danceable and downtempo spaces, it never fails to radiate that coined Bravestation glimmer, furthered by lead singer Devin Wilson's breathy vocals and their melodic, retro instrumentals.
