Well I loathed their first couple of singles, but this is actually rather good!
If you want to use an NME friendly phrase it's anxious electro-rock, with Sam Endicott graduating to an early Bono impersonation declaiming his desire - "I just want love" he cries over a boisterous 1983 backdrop, replete with hard driving bass. And who can argue with that.
The B-side is a pointless Benny Benassi mix which sucks the life out of the song, but if they continue to rack up the big angst points, they could make a convert out of me yet.

having seen them suport the yeah yeah yeahs at the brixton academy i came away with a very strong impression these guys are on their way up and should not be ignored. their use of synths creates a very beatiful sound whilst still being very loud, energetic and honest which does indeed make them some what remenisant of the killers. they are very much on their way to success and are making genuinly meaningful music here, which can feel a hard thing to come by in this day and age. so buy it.

Watch out for this band in the future as they are great. Theres alot of good bands around at the moment that deserve to be big such as bloc party, thirteen seasons etc. All the tracks on this EP are excellent there were only 1000 copies done.
Ive heard the forthcoming bravery album and thats great too.

I don't know specifically which song this is but I saw them live the other night- they were really ace and pretty original.
They were playing hot rock and roll with some electronica style from the keyboard, so it was really cool!!
Met them afterwards, they're really freindly- not at all that moody persona perceived on stage. They also have character and are more than just another wannabe rock band with tedious tunes.
Check them out live!!

You will like this band.
To be frank, I haven't heard the CD. But they were in Jools Holland a couple of nights ago and finally I think I might have cracked the "supporting a great band before anyone else has heard of them" lark. Because what I saw showed a lot of quality.
To begin with, there's the attitude. They loiter on stage with a louche and decadent charm, all eyeliner and alcohol. Just as you think they're all looks and no talent, though, they launch into a song (I forget the title) and suddenly your misgivings are lost in a welter of dirty 80s synths and searing guitar hooks reminiscent of Duran Duran before they were rubbish. Meanwhile the frontman (don't expect names, like I say I just saw them on the telly) struts like Morrissey in his pomp.
They're clearly very savvy, and know how to deliver exactly what it takes to sell a lot of records. What that shouldn't blind you to, however, is the fact that The Bravery are also very good indeed.

Having read a lot about The Bravery I found their website and listened to Unconditional and Honest Mistake. Both tracks are fantastic - a mixture of 80's New Romantic (early Duran Duran?) with a rock kick. They look good live too, although I've only caught them briefly (on TV last night on The Friday Night Project). Definitely a band to look out for. Can't wait for the album, due out in March.

I noticed this band when they released unconditional, im annoyed because i didnt get this ep, but cant wait for their forthcoming album in march which is going to be amazing judging from what i've already heard of them. A good example of their music is the killers/the cure. Kind of! Go visit their website and launch the music player! This band was also named the sound of 2005 by the bbc!

I have seen these guys a couple of times in NYC and I will be catching them in UK next week at the Metro. They are the greatest band to hit since the Beatles. Their music is awesome and they are even better. It's about time we can get looks, attitude and talent rolled into one fantastic group. Hope we see plenty of them for a long time.
