Q Magazine – (4/5 Album Review) ‘like a demented symphony … a one-off, but he’s never inaccessible’
Rob Bravery will release his new single ‘Broom Cupboard’ on November 27th, the same date as his debut album ‘Esque’. With the release of his previous single ‘Knockout Ginger’ Rob drew comparisons to the likes of Thom York, Michael Jackson, and Massive Attack. It’d be great to hear what you think of Broom Cupboard:
The pulsating beats of ‘Broom Cupboard’ are matched with uplifting strings and synths providing the perfect juxtaposition of Rob Bravery’s captivating ingenuity and his darkened songwriting. The bleak themes of Bravery’s traumatic childhood are bought to life as he croons, “mother can you hear me now, I’m really growing up.”
The Line Of Best Fit – ‘a unique vocal style that captures the emotional tension of the greatest alternative icons (say, Thom Yorke) without losing the sleek purity of a more traditional pop singer (heresy, I know, but there’s a touch of Michael Jackson here)’
Attitude – ‘Esque is a brooding masterpiece of synths, piano and hip-hop beats’
