The Bravery: Roadhouse, Manchester
Dave Simpson, The Guardian, 1 December 2004

Signed to Island Def Jam after the obligatory bidding war, their debut EP is being championed by Radio 1 and they are one of the few unknown bands (including Franz Ferdinand, a year ago) to appear on Jools Holland's Later.
