Video Premiere: Brandish – Running

We’re excited to today bring you the premiere of the brand new video from Launceston band Brandish.

The group is made up of longtime mates Hamish Geale (vocals, guitar, keys), Brent Jacobson (lead guitar), Rob O’Brien (drums) and Ryan Goodger (bass) and the first offering from their upcoming debut EP is entitled ‘Running’. Check it out, above.

It’s a bit of a departure for the lads. While there are jangly guitar riffs, they are paired with some juicy urban imagery and hip-hop sounds.

“The lyrics have a bit of attitude so we were keen to put some hip-hop vibes into this one,” Hamish says. “We’d always used traditional drums up until now so it felt like this song was the perfect track to try out some electronic percussion for a change.”

You’ll also notice some female vocals on the track. They belong to Hamish’s sister. “We tossed around names like Sia and Adele but in the end my sister was the best option and also was the only one who returned calls from our manager.”

“Running” will be in Digital Stores on the 30th of September. Brandish’s Self-Titled EP will be released 14th of October 2016.
