When it comes to musical scene within my state North Carolina, it's difficult to pick one artist that shines through as the proud spine of talent in the area (other than say the obvious choice, The Annuals). That's not to say we don't have our fair share that try, but it often takes patience and a big magnifying glass to sift through the mess of cookie-cutters to find the gems underneath. Look no further today, because today's North Carolinian jewel is the crowning Braveyoung with their breathtaking upcoming debut We Are Lonely Animals. Beginning their career under the name Giant, Braveyoung have transformed since their name change in 08' and are rapidly approaching the release date of We Are Lonely Animals on March 29, 2011. If the adjectives ethereal, haunting, and beautiful sound great to you when coupled with post-rock a la Mogwai and Explosions In The Sky, you'll find something to love in Braveyoung. If you need more convincing, the entire album is streaming on their website now and is available to pre-order from here.
