Oski Bravo are a Dublin outfit specialising in an addictive line of melodic indie acoustic pop. The band came together in late 2015 with a simple goal, make some great tunes and wring every last ounce of effort from each other. The line-up is Donnchadh Egan on vocals and acoustic guitar, John Crowther on electric guitar, drummer Keith Cooke and Fiachra Robinson on cello. In early 2016, Oski Bravo finished recording their debut single and EP, and now launch their debut single Automatic.
With hooks and vocals that will have you recalling the warmth of early REM, Idlewild, Juniper, the Frames, King Creosote, Damien Rice, Bellx1 and Revelino, this track is brought to life by the raw tenderness of Egan’s voice and the beauty of Robinson’s soaring and at times menacing cello.
Oski Bravo go hard on harmonic acoustic rock here, and you could label it as indie-folk if the acoustic guitar playing and cello work weren’t so hypnotic. The tune builds to a crescendo with the title track refrain before really bursting into life and transforming into a bit of a stomper.
