FRESH: ‘A Glimpse Of Christmas’ – Braw

Braw offer “A Glimpse Of Christmas”

Yes, it’s Christmas! So they all wheel out their ‘seasonal’ offerings. UK brothers Iain and Andrew Mundy have been recording as Braw for just over a year and after three previous releases this year, they offer up their…’jolly’, comical first crimbo single, “A Glimpse Of Christmas” to end a busy year. This is a song that doesn’t take itself too seriously, and neither do the boys themselves, so wrap some tinsel around your neck, pour a LARGE sherry and dance about the lounge like you really just do not care!

Iain and Andrew tell us: “A Glimpse Of Christmas” was written for one of the most unusual and difficult festive seasons of our lifetimes, to give everyone a wee bit of fun in this testing time. It reminds us that while we may not be able to have the jam-packed family-filled Christmas we’ve come to expect, it’ll make the little things we can do all the more joyful. For the music video, we continued the theme from our last single Whisky in Hand, using clips of friends and family having a laugh while doing festive things. It shows that, even when things around us are a bit serious, we don’t need to take ourselves too seriously”.

As a bonus B-Side, the brothers have also recorded their own version of “O Holy Night”, featuring their dad, John, on guitar and Irena Klimach on oboe!

Braw made their debut with “Swing Door” last year and their single, “Whisky In Hand”, reached No.65 on the Scottish singles chart earlier this year! All five of their tracks will feature on their debut album that’s coming in 2021 as well as some live performances, which the brothers do like to make, offering everything from Simon and Garfunkel to Biffy Clyro as well as their ever growing collection of self composed numbers. With any luck and a full album of material to pick from, they won’t need ‘trouble’ us with “Bridge Over Troubled Water” when they do! Happy Christmas you two from us all here at talkaboutpopmusic.com

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
