King of Crows is the first EP recorded by Braver than Fiction, which was released on 24th July 2014, a day prior to us opening up at The Leadmill, Sheffield for Tramlines Festival 2014, supporting Cut Ribbons, JOLTA and The Wedding Present.


We recorded King of Crows at Yellow Arch Studios in Sheffield, choosing to record the four tracks on the EP live, as an authentic representation of what you might chance upon if you attend one of our shows.

Once recorded, we did not tamper with the songs in the mix, other than a little necessary ‘housekeeping’ (we assumed nobody wanted to hear us discussing socks and chocolate). The back cover of the EP reads thus:

KING OF CROWS / CANDLE-BLIND / MR. JONES (FEAR OF FALLING) / ONCE BITTEN, TWICE SHY

We choose not to haemorrhage every note we conceive across the wonderful world of social media but, we do have an insatiable predilection for playing live, at every possible opportunity. In search of a faithful echo to reflect this passion, we challenged ourselves to record all four tracks for our first EP live, on the same day.

If you are looking for a recording that has been picked apart and scoured to death in production you are going to be disappointed. Aside from some minimal but entirely necessary tweaks, this is an authentic portrayal of how Braver than Fiction actually sound – up close and personal.

We hope that you enjoy it and that you will be encouraged to venture out to one of our gigs and support the live scene!

The first 100 physical copies of King of Crows were hand-finished, limited edition, signed, vinyl-look CDs; they are very special but, if you missed out on one of those, it is still possible to download a digital copy of the EP from our Bandcamp.
