The best kept secret in music


"Sponic review"

The diverse and literate music of Bravo Silva juxtaposes genres and precludes classification. Combining dynamic instrumentation, insightful lyricism and hook-laden song arrangements, they have crafted a record of pure indie-rock bliss. Bravo Silva originated in New Hampshire where Henry Silva and Joel Bravo bonded their friendship and love of blues and rock into a band. They have since developed a unique hybrid of sound that borrows from blues, folk and 80’s revival, aptly demonstrating their versatility and musical ingenuity. Their 5 song EP July politely grabs your attention from the very first notes and continues to expand with each listen. -

Feeling a bit camera shy


New York duo Bravo Silva makes artful pop rock music that is at once extremely listenable and sonically complex. Acknowledging the limitations of contemporary indie-rock, Bravo Silva balances the genre's self-awareness with an unguarded love for accessible, intelligent songcraft. Working together, Henry Silva and Joel Bravo create rock tunes that take a crash course through 80s radio rock melody, singer/songwriter verse, and 70s prog rock theatrics. Their synergetic collaboration is musically dynamic: while Silva's husk-and-silk voice reaches for far ends of a dramatic range, Bravo's subtle yet deft guitar work supports and challenges hook-filled song writing. Lush and textured soundscapes call to mind the arrangements of Blonde Redhead and 10cc, and pop-oriented melodies draw from The Police and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. However, once their melodious hooks set in, the band moves on. Never settling, Bravo Silva changes course just as everything becomes comfortable.

Bravo Silva recently finished recording their self-titled debut, produced by Malachi DeLorenzo and soon to be released by Streak Music. For their live sets they are joined by M Wolf (drums), Daniel Gower (synths), and Pete Van Leeuwen (bass).
