Farewell Republic: “Wake”

Farewell Republic Live (credit Rob Migrin)

With a mammoth start that only curls and builds after, Sivan Jacobovitz  (Guitar, Vocals), Ryan Sloan (Bass, Keys), Bobby Matson (Drums), and Brian Trahan (Keys, Vocals) of the Brooklyn via Ann Arbor grand band Farewell Republic deliver a huge punch to your ear’s gut.  “Wake” is the first track off of their debut album, Burn the Boats, out this January.  There’s a real intelligence behind the structure and path the song takes, and it speaks well to what the album holds.  Sample the single below, then trek over to the band’s BandCamp site for a free download of the 7” B-side, “Come Irene” and fellow album mate, “Gliss”.
