Brave Giant Receive IMRO No.1 Award

Brave Giant were this week presented with their IMRO No.1 Award in recognition of their album ‘White, Pink + Blue’, which reached the top of the Independent Chart earlier this year.

The IMRO Number 1 Award was introduced to acknowledge IMRO members who reach number 1 in the album charts here in Ireland.

Earlier this year Emmett, Mark, Podge and Ross of Brave Giant teamed up with one of Ireland’s most respected musicians and producers Gavin Glass of Orphan Recording, to record this debut long play which saw a slight change in direction for the band. A sound Gavin (producer) affectionately refers to as… “it’s like David Guetta meets The War On Drugs”

Emmett (percussion) said, “We’ve explored new sounds and have drawn on influences from even more musical genres. Heavy synths, spacey guitars, driving drums and a mandolin like you’ve never heard before. The core elements which make Brave Giant what it is are still there, we’ve just added some magic, we hope!”

Peter Ashmore joined Gavin Glass on recording duties at Orphan Recording and Hellfire Studios in the picturesque Dublin mountains. Gavin also plays on part of the record. Additional production is by Brave Giant’s own Emmett Collum and the record is mastered by Stephen Ceresia at Stonyfield Mastering.

Emmett Collum (percussion), Mark Prunty (bass, guitar/vocals), Podge Gill (guitar/vocals), Ross McNerney (banjo/mandolin/keys), are Brave Giant. A band rooted in an inherited love for trad & folk, moulded, morphed and inspired by indie & alternative influences. Based in Longford the band released its first commercial track in April 2016, the still hugely popular ‘Lordy Lordy’.

In just three years, Brave Giant has gone from selling out two nights Upstairs at Whelan’s Live, Dublin to the band’s biggest headline show to date at The Olympia Theatre in November.

The band has also seen its Spotify streams grow to over 2.5 million during the last year, and online video views in the same region.
