Single review: The Goldhearts | Be Brave

Born from the classic lineage of much loved 90s alternative Brisbane acts The Dream Poppies and Razel, melodically charged Gold Coast indie rockers The Goldhearts have pleasingly resurfaced following a three year hiatus with the release of a punchy new number, entitled ‘Be Brave’.

Teaming up again with talented Northern NSW producer Govinda Doyle, (who’s also worked with artists of the calibre of Angus and Julia Stone), the gutsy, upfront vocals of front woman Margy Joughin lead the band through three minutes of aural bliss which channels all the best bits of 90s alternative radio. This is the sound of crunchy guitars melded with a swooning chorus and anchored by a rock solid rhythm section, delivering an assured slice of radio-ready pop-rock which should firmly re-establish The Goldhearts within the hearts and minds of discerning modern rock listeners. ‘Be Brave’ serves as a precursor to an upcoming EP of new material which the band plan to release later this year. It’s great to have them back!
