From Tiger Trap, to the Softies, and now Brave Irene – out of Canada… One of our favorite vocalists, Rose Melberg returns to us again from Vancouver to put her stamp on another round of eight tracks from the band’s self-titled debut EP.

Formed in December 2009 around the core of Rose and Caitlin, Brave Irene are five best mates whose friendship and camaraderie shines through the warmth of these lovely recordings. Caitlin and Jessica’s keyboards play a prominent role in Brave Irene’s songs, adding a slightly psychedelic vibe that slots in well with early Flying Nun bands and even some of the LA Paisley Underground scene. EP opener “No Fun” is an excellent example, a fuzzy gem that recalls NZ legends Look Blue Go Purple in it’s organ-driven folk/pop groove. The rhythms are really key here, Laura’s muscular drumming giving the songs a real oomph and momentum that perfectly complements their catchy-as-heck tunes. [via Slumberland]
