Brother Valiant has released a new uplifting and heart-pumping anthem titled, “Wander”. With an infectious chorus and a captivating toe-tapping melody, the song will instantly nourish and inspire audiences of all ages. The single is a follow-up to their last release, “Lady Daisy”, and further explores themes about the “misadventures that emotional extremes take on.”
“You know The sun shines wherever you roam Wait for me in a ‘Nother dream, another kiss Telling yourself that you’ll never miss me I’ll always be the one you call home”
Brother Valiant was founded by singer-songwriter Alex Amsterdam in the spring of 2013. During this time, he and his friends would track demos huddled inside a small suburban basement in northern New Jersey. What started with simple folk songs paying homage to artists like Paul Simon and Conor Oberst, turned to take a shape of its own. It wasn’t long before Brother Valiant began playing around the New York tri-state area, brandishing a unique sound to create a jubilant display of musicianship.
Themes of navigating feelings of anxiety, love, and fear through an adventurous spirit remain a hallmark of Brother Valiant’s writing, which bled through the compositions with an authentic wit. A byproduct of growing up in a small town immersed in cultivating local artists, the music casts a truly distinct reflection of suburban life on the East Coast. Complete with big sing-along choruses, visceral lyricism, and rambunctious bass melodies, Brother Valiant creates an atmosphere that both celebrates and distorts the sounds of Americana and folk-rock, where all are invited to sing out.
The song was written as a follow-up to their last song, “Lady Daisy” which received acclaim from the likes of Earmilk and Atwood Magazine among others. Amsterdam’s penchant for emotive storytelling shines through with folk-infused foot-stomping soundscapes and a rousing anthemic chorus. “Writing as brutally honest as I can helps me make sense of moments lived, and how to grow from the. It can be very cathartic. That was certainly the case with this song.”
Brother Valiant continues to bring his stunning mix of Americana, rock, and folk-pop to the masses with “Wander.” Amsterdam further confides that his upcoming music details “ideas about self-sabotage, and trying to rectify mistakes and behaviors that cause them. Waking up on a new day and trying to be a bit better of a person.”
