Mauve – ‘Branches’
Hailing from London, Mauve has released their excellent alternative-rock single ‘Branches’, in December 2020. It is a magnificent release which we highly recommend.
An energetic and compelling opening greets the audience. We adore the textured guitars, bass and drums which set the scene beautifully as to what is to come.
As the charming vocals enter, ‘Branches’ is in full flow. The main melody is memorable and stays with the listener long after the music has ended. We adore the dynamic chorus; it is catchy and will have the listener reaching for the repeat button. There is no question that ‘Branches’ will win Mauve an army of new fans!
Mauve says about the release, “We wrote this during the first lockdown by sending voice notes beats and demos to each other. We eventually recorded it separately with our friend Dan J Lambert at ValhallaStudioss.” They continue, “We believe this is our most rocky/angsty song yet and captures the frustrations of being a band during the recent pandemic.”
Mauve is comprised of band members Steve Campbell – Guitar/Vocals, Ieuan Smith – Bass/Vocals, and Ben Smith – Drums. Together they are making innovating and intoxicating music that needs to be heard!
In addition, Mauve cites their influences as Biffy Clyro, Twin Atlantic, Taking Back Sunday, Dinosaur Pile Up, Pinegrove, and Phoebe Bridgers. We can hear these artists coming through on ‘Branches’ but make no mistake; Mauve is making music all of their own!
So make sure you add ‘Branches’ to your playlist this weekend. Mauve is a band who are making waves this 2020, and we are confident that the 2020s are going to be a significant decade for them. We can not wait to hear what will come next!
