GOING LIVE: Brand New

BRAND NEW, CURSIVE
SOUND ACADEMY, TORONTO / AUGUST 2ND

Not many bands can be subtle and explosive at the same time, but somehow Long Island five-piece BRAND NEW always seem to accomplish no matter what stage they grace. Returning to Toronto after a near three-year hiatus, the band ran through tracks from their entire catalogue, branding sincerity with a rougher core with their later material and sinking their teeth into the knifing Your Favourite Weapon/Deja Entendu-hooks they were first known for. CURSIVE’s model of Omaha rock crashed down with a heavy accent and clearly instigated that when you witness two renowned bands re-introduce their pattern of attack, it’s hard to stay conscious in the crowd you find yourself in.
