The Friday Fire Track: The Rural Alberta Advantage – “Brother”

| | , ,

The Rural Alberta Advantage are back! The band will release their new studio album, The Wild, on October 13th via Saddle Creek Records in the US and Paper Bag Records in Canada, the United Kingdom and Europe. The Friday Fire Track today, “Brother,” brings back RAA’s intense indie folk with its marching foot stomps and lead singer Nils Edenloff’s strained delivery. The band shows off their true talent at the midpoint on this track as everything gets turned up several controlled notches.

The Rural Alberta Advantage is so good at this style and heartbreak, passion and intensity are givens. TFN has not heard The Wild yet but if “Brother” is any indication, the album could easily end up in our Blazing Top 50 at the end of the year. The band already has a string of tour dates to support this release which you can check below so play the track, check the dates and enjoy your Friday!
