Guitarist Alex Lawrence of Aberdeen, Scotland, band Brace, says their goals are quite simple. âAt the end of the day, I think we just want to be relevant and enjoy what we are doing at the same time. The balance is difficult, but if we can write riffs that make kids go mental whilst they scream the words back to us, then I guess we've fulfilled every intention weâve ever had." Brace, who came together in late 2011, refer to themselves as âa hybrid of many corners of heavy music,â because theyâre not sure what genre embodies their straight-up punk performances combined with their heavy-hitting metal sound. âWe were recently classed as âpost-metalcore,ââ says Lawrence, âbut we don't even know what that is! I guess itâs nice to be blurring genre lines and perhaps creating a slightly new sound for people to get into."
