Solo Bravo – Action On Highways EP

Self-Released [2002]

Chirpy 3-minute pop melodies aplenty with Solo Bravo‘s debut ep ‘Action On The Highways’. Twin vocalists and the inclusion of trombone and organ make for a delightful mix of the whimsical (‘Mellow Life’, ‘In love With A Stranger’) and downright groovy (‘Data Entry Operator #23’). The 2 contrasting vocal styles add a level of diversity to the EP, some tracks lean towards a quirky Super Furry Animals sound, whilst others have a more honest, mature sound.

The instrumentation’s great, slick organ, groovy bass, effective horn and polished guitar – often with 60s styled inflection. a thoroughly enjoyable ep – expect big things from these guys, ‘Data Entry Operator #23’ could make a brilliant pop single.
