Sam Brace Cuts Loose on Debut Album “Fever & Bones”

By Charlie Maybee

Rock singer-songwriter, Sam Brace, just released his debut solo album Fever & Bones which merges an alternative energy with classic guitar tones that are atmospheric in nature.

For fans of Foo Fighters, this is the kind of high-octane, but thoughtful kind of rock that is a straightforward, no nonsense good time. Shifting between larger-than-life ambience of “Ultraviolet” and the more charged and pulsing “Year of Punk”, Brace manages compositions that twist and turn with a pop finesse. Open verses that show restraint and emotive power next to electric choruses that swell well beyond the cosmos.

Inspired by acts like Radiohead, David Bowie, and Queens of the Stone Age, the album cuts like a razor. Fever & Bones is fast moving and revels in the ability to distort its shape to meet the message of any given song while never losing its alterative edge. Produced in collaboration with longtime friend, Adam Tarry, during the pandemic, the energy expands beyond lockdown parameters and will have you captivated in no time.

Fever & Bones is available on major streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, and BandCamp. Find this and more great music on the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture playlist on Spotify.
