"Undeniably great songs." - NPR

“Beautifully straddles the line between dreamy and discordant” — FILTER Magazine

“Arcade Fire minus the hysteria” – The Deli Magazine

“Blend of 80s-influenced synth/guitar work and modern pop-rock sounds” – Vice Noisey

“The New York indie band totally rocks our world with their brand of ‘80s-style, synthy rock.” – Artist Direct

“More than a decade after the riff-heavy heyday of The Strokes, The Vines, The White Stripes, The Hives, and many other bands that put the word “the” before a plural noun, we may be ready for another bout of ripping revivalism… Born Cages certainly makes that argument.” – Blackbook Magazine
Brother Valiant - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
Brother Valiant
Formed in early 2013, Brother Valiant began as a couple of friends sharing their musical ideas inside a basement in suburban New Jersey. It didn't take long for the project to evolve into an eclectic 7-piece ensemble, forging an identity all their own–a patchwork of sounds described by some as "Alternative Jazz-Folk" and "Americana Ska." Amongst their rambunctious horn section and satirical lyricism, with driving rhythms, jangly guitars, and melodic banjo riffs, Brother Valiant creates an atmosphere that both celebrates and distorts the most exciting aspects of music.

More recently, the band has been gearing up to tour the East Coast in promotion of their first full-length album, Thus, He Was, Brother Valiant. The album, independently produced by the band, was recorded partially at "The Den" at Smacktone Studios in Woodland Park, NJ and in their modest home studios. The album can be listened to on the band's personal website, iTunes and Spotify.
