The Salient Braves – Delusions of Grandeur


Delusions of Grandeur is the debut long-player from Barnsley’s finest The Salient Braves whose music I’ve championed a few times before on this blog, so now, as I hoped for at the end of 2016 I’m pleased to be sitting here typing a few more words of support for the band, whose creative output deserves a wider audience, with the album serenading me in all of its analogue glory – the vinyl release features ten tracks to maintain the integrity of the 180g release the remaining three songs accompany the album digitally when you order from Broken Down Records Bandcamp.

The band are Matt Bailey, Johny Nocash and Neil Ritchie with backing vocals courtesy of Dani, the album was recorded at Ace Things Studio, self-produced and engineered/mixed by Neil.

Songwriter Matt’s lyrics provide the centrepiece for the album, insightful, frequently acerbic and witty, his societal observations in song scratch away the cracked veneer that may, to some, suggest everything’s alright in 2017, vignettes on the everyday, on life, vices, domestic abuse, mental health – the subject matter may be tempered by a catchy chorus or with clever melodic phrasing but that doesn’t diminish the message,  it’s punk, it’s indie in its truest sense and it’s a damn fine record too, my favourite of 2017 (so far) and you should go and get yourself a copy too, in keeping with the indie ethic the vinyl is only £12,
