Band To Watch: The Brevet


If the SoCal alternative-rock four piece The Brevet doesn't sound familiar to you, they will soon. Their music has been featured all over prime time television shows and they've opened for major acts such as Young the Giant and Airbourne Toxic Event. Coming straight out of Irvine, California (which is also the birthplace for bands like Thrice and Young the Giant), this four piece is destined for great things.

We were invited to a small, intimate show at the No Name Bar last month, where The Brevet showcased tunes off their new EP entitled, "EMBERS: Ch. 2". The bar was an ideal setting to highlight their talent and mingled with the overall feel of their music. The lights dimmed low and the four men packed themselves onto a tiny stage, illuminated by two large spotlights on either side. As lead vocalist Aric began to croon, an evident similarity with his voice and bands like Needtobreathe, Mumford & Sons, and The Lumineers began to appear. A silence spread over the room and all the attention was drawn to the stage. Even those dining who were unaware that they were in for a show, lowered their forks and turned, setting their sites on The Brevet. Their sound is a perfect blend of rock, with hints of pop, and a tinge of folk music.

Following the release of their EP, the Brevet unveiled new visuals for their single "Ember". The video is set in old Hollywood era, featuring a dancer going through the different stages of her life. The Brevet puts on a magnetizing display of emotion that is communicated beautifully through music, easily captivating anyone in the vicinity of their presence. Catch them live at their upcoming shows below and give their new music video a watch (or three).
