Newcomer rap artist Brave Heart has released his breakout single “In the Car”
Newcomer rap artist Brave Heart (born Eric Hardin Benoit) has released his breakout single “In the Car.” The single boasts an irresistible beat, masterful mixing, in your face guitars, and an overall irreverent style not unlike that of fellow alternative rap legends, the Beastie Boys. The single is startling in its excellence, particularly in the writing of the lyrics and background mix, but its strongest attribute – by far – is its undeniable rhythm and groove. It is simply impossible to hear more than a measure without nodding the head, tapping the foot.
Brave Heart names as his major artistic influences the likes of Eminem and Kid Rock. These artists have had more than a passing effect on his own music, to be sure. From Eminem Brave Heart seems to have taken the ability to place rhythm and groove between lines so that one phrase melts into and overlaps with both its former and its latter framings. From Kid Rock, he has learned the power of the rock n' roll back beat with electric guitar, which energizing combination underlies his more orthodox use of contemporary hip hop drum and bass.
Brave Heart himself writes that his music is intended to convey the message of his belief in what he terms “the power of individual thought,” and this is certainly upheld by the obvious deliberation in his songwriting. Each line and word are meticulously crafted, and every beat and measure has been weighed for propriety, placement, flow and diction. Unsurprisingly, Brave Heart got his start in the music scene by writing lyrics for his friends. Naturally, this single “In the Car” was inevitable, and a full-length LP album is also expected (and already widely anticipated) from him.
Brave Heart's first single “How High” is also available for viewing online.
