Bravestation are a Toronto band (who I just found out are friends of friends), but they’ve definitely got that UK indie 80s post punk, with feverish lyrics, brooding basslines, and this polished National/Interpol aesthetic. I’ve been hearing a lot of comparisons to Yeasayer, perhaps mildly, but I don’t really hear it too much. Their new wave/post punk EP is their second, they released a debut in 09. They’re playing Wrongbar on August 12th, I may check this one out. Oh, and best part- their EP is up for a free download over at their bandcamp page.
