My Silent Bravery released two EPs this Summer entitled Willing to Try Volumes 1 & 2. Willing to Try Volume 1 has an overall feel of Summer fun, nostalgia, and romance. The four songs of the album are Got It Going On, Hearts Breakdown, 18, and Girl You Think You Know.
The lyrics have quality and profound meaning to them. The stories are relatable and beautiful. The presence of the guitar is incredible!!
Got It Going On and 18 are happy and cheerful songs. Got It Going On is an optimistic tune that cheers you up. The story is about a guy who lives his life with confidence and happiness. I like the feeling of owning my life. The song 18 is my favourite song of the EP. It tells the story of a guy remembers what it was like to be 18. There’s a feeling of nostalgia to which many can relate. In this song, the references are from the 80s, such as Patrick Swayze.
Hearts Breakdown and Girl You Think Know are sad, but sweet songs. Hearts Breakdown tells the story of a guy who struggles with the relationships, which is relatable to many. In relationships, one can wear his or her heart on her sleeve. Love is an abstract emotion and makes us do crazy stuff. Logic is “thrown out” the window. Hearts Breakdown describes how hard and challenging relationships are, especially when there’s a risk of it ending. The song The Girl You Think You Know talks about a nice girl who faces challenges in her life, which isn’t common knowledge while putting on a brave face. It’s something that is relatable. We have one face that we allow people to see, and then we have the “real” face that we keep hidden.
