German post-rock/experimental quintet THERE’S A LIGHT will release their second album and label debut, f̶o̶r̶ ̶w̶h̶a̶t̶ ̶m̶a̶y̶ ̶I ̶h̶o̶pe̶? for what must we hope?, this Friday via Napalm Records! Fans of their atmospheric and multilayered post-rock were already able to take a further glimpse into the new full-length’s atmospheric soundscapes with their pre-released singles “Eplis” and “Dark Clouds Behind, Bright Skies Ahead”. Today, THERE’S A LIGHT are paving the final path to the imminent album release with their beautiful third and final single, “Be Brave, Fragile Heart”, alongside a heartfelt music video.
With a soft fade in, a peaceful melody of blended guitar and piano play emerges from thin air. Distant ambient tones follow, resembling light raindrops as they fall on an old, rugged iron roof. This time, the story of “Be Brave, Fragile Heart” is given life by Andreas Richau’s gentle, breathy vocals, too. While flying synths and dissolute instrumental parts slowly pull at the listeners’ ears, a quiet, distant-sounding rhythm settles in, alike the gradual ticking of time. The whole piece stretches over seven and a half minutes and yet feels like a beautiful moment that passes far too quickly and that you could hold on to forever.
THERE’S A LIGHT on “Be Brave, Fragile Heart”:
“’Be Brave, Fragile Heart’ is a song about discovering an unknown fragility within yourself and how to deal with it honestly. What might sound weak for some, we believe is a necessity to get out of the dark times that life brings to all of us sometimes. While destruction happens fast, healing takes its time.”
