Rob Bravery – strange, piano-led pop (From the Charlie Williams seed)

The first track I heard of Rob’s was “Hedonistic Graveyard”, and it was a particularly exciting moment in the project because I could hear how we got here from the original seed…he has the instrumental delight of Mira Mira, with a touch of Sharples’ low-key delivery.
