Track of the Day: Brain Romance “Honest Words” (2019)

Our Track of the Day is a new collaboration by an exciting highly-esteemed Melbourne-based indie folk duo, Brian Campeau and Hannah Cameron.

Melbourne artist Hannah Cameron and Canadian-born Sydney musician Brian Campeau have long shared a mutual admiration and nurturing of one another’s musical journeys. Having released solo albums two and four respectively in 2018; Cameron’s I Lay Where You Lie and Campeau’s BBC 6Music endorsed Old Dog, New Tricks, the full-time friends, part-time collaborators are teaming up for good as brand new outfit, Brain Romance. Conjuring their collective indie-folk mastery, the duo’s debut single ‘Honest Words’ is an immediately arresting refrain and one that is sure to set the tone for what’s to come from this long-awaited dream partnership.

An impeccably poignant first offering, ‘Honest Words’ draws upon the pairs’ equally lauded guitar and vocal skills to deliver an organic indie-folk masterpiece whose exquisite harmonies nestle in comfortably amongst the Simon and Garfunkel era greats. Self-produced and mixed, ‘Honest Words’ was recorded with help from Clio Renner on piano and Tamara Murphy on double bass and mastered by Lachlan Carrick.


They have some shows coming up to launch the single, so do try and get along to these.

Wednesday 15 May – FolkSwagon, Sydney
Thursday 23 May – The Gasometer Upstairs
Sunday 9 June – The Bridge Hotel, Castlemaine
