More about Brave Shores? After the made-for-TV single was picked up by Bell Canada, Never Come Down quickly caught the attention of online music fans and turned heads at Universal Music Canada. Very suddenly, the McCarrol siblings and their songwriting skills were in demand. This unexpected interest inspired Jay and Stefanie to collaborate on more songs, and soon after, Brave Shores was a living, breathing band. Brave Shores’ music is fun. According to a recent review by music blog When the Gramophone Rings, Brave Shores create “pop tunes that are deep and colourful, sparkly yet strong, showing light and shade.” Each track from their self-titled debut EP displays a variety of inspirations: There are surf guitar trills, chunks of gritty distortion, and layers of stylized harmonies. It is no surprise that their video for Never Come Down has become a Much Music favourite and has garnered over 45,000 views on YouTube.
