Newcomers Brave Vultures Unveil ‘I’m Not Coming Back If You’re Not Here’ – Essex Emo Rockers Debut EP Has Landed

Describing their debut as “emo rock with a slice of punk”, Colchester newcomers Brave Vultures are pleased to release ‘I’m Not Coming Back If You’re Not Here’. “I try to write to a realist style and cut the bullshit cliches”, says vocalist Dom Littler, “My lyrics are about my struggles with anxiety, love and relationships, a best friend recovering from a drug addiction and coming out of rehabilitation a better person.” The EP is available through via major digital platforms, physically here and features debut single ‘With Me’, the video for which can be seen here.

‘I’m Not Coming Back If You’re Not Here’ is the quartet’s guitar driven statement of intent, a first step in a career which Littler and his bandmates hope will save them from the mundanity of real jobs. The debut presents tracks layered with passionate vocal hooks and influences from all corners of the pop punk, punk rock and emo rock world. With nods to Deaf Havana and Moose Blood, the 5 tracks provide a solid foundation for the band to make their mark with. “Being in our mid-twenties, we are all being pressured into getting real jobs and growing up”, Littler explains; “Brave Vultures is our escape from the world, and we won’t be hanging up our gigging hats for some wanker in an office any time soon. It takes a lot of bravery to laugh off financial security and join a band. You have to be brave if you want to follow your dreams.”
