A. T. Branch has an interesting story. He’s a former army captain with a passion for music and his debut EP, Renegade, drops on Nov. 15. We have the exclusive stream before you can hear it anywhere else.
Branch has a beautifully unique voice, with musical roots in gospel and R&B. Despite those being big influences, he describes his sound as alternative/pop. Now, he’s gearing up to release his debut EP which is full of themes of using self-actualization for good. It’s about heartbreak, the walls that come after a relationship, unwanted sexual encounters and loving an alcoholic.
“With a title like Renegade I knew that I’d have to take risks, so early on in this project, I decided that no matter the challenge, I wouldn’t shy away from being tough enough to be vulnerable,” he says.
The EP’s sound is a mix of his acoustic sound with electronic synthesizers underneath. That creates a juxtaposition of chaos and simplicity, which he says reflects his own life. So far, Branch has released three singles from the EP — “Renegade,” “Thug” and “The Flood.”
