After releasing second album ‘The Sun and the Moon’ just over a year ago, The Bravery always harboured hopes to remix their sophomore works and re-package the LP as a 2-disc reimagining. Working on the alternate versions in the back of their tour bus last summer, before heading to the studio once more late 2007 to finish up their concept, ‘The Sun and the Moon Complete’ was born.
Harbouring the original 12 track album on disc 1, The Sun version, and the new, remixed tracks on disc 2, The Moon version, The Bravery’s finished double record is proof of why they stormed the music scene back in 2005. While The Sun boasts cultured indie riffs, The Moon harks back to the band’s electro roots, basked in experimental synths and Sam Endicott’s trademark vocals. While their first ‘The Sun and the Moon’ release was fantastic, the ‘Complete’ version is even better, proving buzz bands can indeed outlive the ‘band of the moment’ tag, and forge a hugely successful career.
