Ensuring the surrounding world slips from focus during its three minutes and a handful of seconds presence, it is fair to say that Magnificent is one highly memorable and bewitching encounter. The new single from British indie outfit Speak, Brother, the track is the next powerful step in the ascent of the Rugby hailing quintet and a mouth-watering teaser for the album bearing its presence, Young & Brave set to be released in Spring 2018.
Speak, Brother has already felt the touch of acclaim through a pair of previous EPs and the eager support of fans, Young & Brave being successfully crowd-funded. Magnificent alone suggests James Herring, Matthew Cotterill, Nathan Morris, Dan Smith, and Sam Oakes have seen nothing yet on both fronts though and is sure to trigger real anticipation for that upcoming full-length.
The track slides into view on a gentle melodic mist, being joined soon after by strong ear luring vocals fuelled by emotive richness around intimate words. The ethereal air of the song has a brewing intensity which erupts as guitars and rhythms bring their bold proposals to the indie folk/rock saunter. Every element now in full swing has drama in its veins, suggestive hues in its sound to match the descriptive lyrics being shared with greater expression.
With a touch of Doves to its driving stroll and almost nagging beauty, the song infests body and spirit; creating a rousing incitement hard to lessen an energetic appetite for let alone tear oneself away from. If Magnificent, a song living up to its title in every sense of the word, is a sign of what we can expect from Young & Brave, Speak, Brother is looking at a mighty 2018 which will start even earlier once the band open up their UK tour later this year.
Magnificent is released September 22nd
