SUNNY DAY SETS FIRE – Brainless (7″ Single)

Brainless CoverBrikabrak BRK001: 27th February 2006
1. Brainless
"See, a story when I tell you I don't wanna be brainless"
2. Nations Underground
"I hear the trumpets sound, to wake the nations underground"

'Brainless' is wonderful mix of acoustic guitars, brass, strange sound effects and quite possibly The Chipmunks. It's the same sort of thing as other Quirk-Pop* bands such as The Flaming Lips and Misty's Big Adventure. Two thirds through you're hit with a killer solo that someone like Slash would be proud of. Fortunately it's made with different bizarre effects so it doesn't upset the weirdness. My dad heard a few seconds of the solo and I later found him humming it to himself (Praise indeed!).

'Nations Underground's female vocal sounds like it's done by Victoria Bergsman from The Concretes. But I assume it's actually done by female band member Onyee (From Hong-Kong). It's the sound of the sun coming up and the world coming alive.
