Lonely the Brave - Things will Matter

Lonely The Brave burst onto the alternative rock scene with 2014’s The Day’s War and this follow-up continues where that impressive debut left off.

The slow, brooding opener Wait In The Car sets a gloomy tone, before the chiming lead guitar and grungy chords of Black Mire come crashing in, topped off with singer David Jakes’ trademark impassioned delivery.

The memorable ringing guitar lines and anthemic chorus of Rattlesnakes grab the attention, while the more laidback Springsteen-esque Diamond Days shows there’s another side to the Cambridge-based rockers.

While there’s nothing to quite match the emotional depth of The Blue, The Green from their debut record here, there are plenty of big choruses and more delicate moments to keep fans happy.
