Bryan Bravo knows what it’s like to Feel Lucky in his new single and video — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
An infectious Latin-flavoured number about falling head over heels in love at the club, Feel Lucky is typical of the celebratory, upbeat pop the Toronto singer-songwriter displays throughout his recent EP Be Mine.
“Be Mine captivates and embraces a euphoric state of mind,” Bravo shares. “Infatuated with the idea of love, and how deep it will go … Finding oneself at a standstill, unable to lose themselves completely, evoking the thought ‘why you gotta be inside my mind?’ When you’re caught in the recycled motions of a relationship, things are no longer what they’re made out to be. Eventually you are breaking away completely and renouncing all feelings of love — and your insecurities fade, only to surrender oneself to the pursuit of love once again – ‘will you be mine?’ ”
Bravo’s prior experience performing live and producing music come across in the fine tuning he gives his songs — this suave sonic specificity is what makes listening to Be Mine so satisfying. Able to pair an emotional hook with colourful cadence and expressive storytelling, Bravo delivers a truly worthwhile listening experience overall.
Having always held a passion for writing lyrics and creating songs, the rapper, songwriter, singer and artist eventually joined the hip-hop group Mindful MCs. He went on to perform within the greater Toronto area, and features at venues like Workman Arts, CAMH, Revival and Hot Docs Cinema eventually led to the song Mentally Healthy in 2018. Since then, he has released a series of singles and EPs leading up to Be Mine.
