"The final moments of the record are Big|Brave at their most powerful: Wattie’s declarations of immunity and protection are both affirmational and confrontational, daring anybody to disagree with her (and the record’s) statement of purpose."
- Lincoln Jones, Heavy Blog is Heavy

"Considerably more downbeat than 2015’s Au De La, Ardor’s 30-minute runtime is divided across only two tracks, the weak heartbeat of Lull barely sustained by blunted guitars and minimal percussion, only to deliver the full impact of its constantly teased weight in its closing minutes.."
- Tom O'Boyle, Team Rock

Montreal's Big|Brave present Ardor, a powerfully emotional 45-minute long release which balances droning soundscapes and screeching feedback with Robin Wattie's haunting vocals for an imaginative and cathartic album.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
