Tigerbeat – “Brave”


With an affinity for crisp-clear dream-pop guitar lines and soaring melodies, Tigerbeat are an act from Champaign, Illinois, whose new track “Brave” is aptly self-dubbed as “lonesome highway rock/dream-pop.” The first track from their debut album Breaking Away, “Brave” rides on a triumphantly twangy hook that reminds of Matthew Good’s alt-rock work, while flourishes like the key-laden addition at 02:09 provide an additional effervescence. This is a rock-solid track from Tigerbeat, who show themselves as very capable of creating stirring melodies within a dreamy rock-laden aesthetic throughout.
