TVD Premiere: Kings of The Brushwood Thicket, The Lies You Leave Behind

Retro guitar slingers’ Kings of The Brushwood Thicket debut with intimate folk lullabies.

We have the pleasure of premiering the intimately captured 9 song debut, The Lies You Leave Behind from the NYC folk visionaries. From the vulnerable opener “Sweep Away” to the closing notes of the Beatle-esque “Losing Her Again,” lead singer Bruce Brauer exudes pleasantries on behalf of his bleeding heart, delivering honest and insightful songs that convey a world weary hopefulness.

The band’s glam rock roots are evident and create something quite unique once placed atop the ever present sonic thump of jangly guitar and timpani—like Marc Bolan fronting the first incarnation of Mumford & Sons. But it is Brauer’s socially conscious songwriting that truly pushes the music into its own category.

Preorder The Lies You Leave Behind at Kings of The Brushwood Thicket’s Bandcamp page—available tomorrow, May 5.
