"Letting your mind drift, allowing your thoughts to float into unexpected directions...That’s the effect David Bronson has. ‘Incompetent Assassin’ is blissfully downplayed, with a near Elliot Smith use of twisted silence."- Clash
‘What stands is a decent recording from a reflective soul, one who’s purging his innermost feelings for all to see.’ - 7/10 Drowned in Sound
‘There are dreamlike qualities to several songs and, even without the aid of hallucinogenic substances, you can join David in a world of poetry, imagery and unrequited love.’ - No Depression
‘If you like well-produced, catchy, decent guitar playing and solid vocals then you’ll like this. It’s clear that he takes what he does very seriously and puts a lot of thought into things.’ – Gold Flake Paint
NYC singer-songwriter, David Bronson has unveiled his latest video for the track ‘One Simple Myth’ from his latest album, ‘The Long Lost’.
The visual landscape takes viewers on Bronson’s personal journey of refusal to accept the world as it is. The story interlinks animation with life as a comic book to a drab and dreary reality. The story unfolds with intercut scenes of a comic book and swirls around, matching the hypnotic production of One Simple Myth.
Directed by David and his brother, Jeremy, One Simple Myth is compiled of footage from during David’s studies when working towards his MFA thesis. The musician says it reflects the winding disposition of his ‘The Long Lost Story’ project, which comprises of two albums, ‘Story’ and ‘The Long Lost’ which features 22 sonically profound tracks that portrays the artist’s creativity and continuing perseverance for making his ideas come to life.
Bronson says: “There’s a lot of stubbornness in The Long Lost Story; a lot of refusal to accept the world as it had presented itself to me. It had something to do with being in a state of disbelief and that my particular version of idealism and youthful optimism was so vast that I was unable to cope with the reality of my circumstance. As cliché as it might sound, I was probably just having a very hard time “growing up” and was clinging desperately to the version of existence I had mapped out inside myself/”

Bronson will embark on a tour of the Midwest and Northeast of the States in March. Dates include Chicago, Indiana and Ohio before concluding on the east coast at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall. Further dates in April are to be confirmed.
A third album is in the works and is slated for release later in the year. The future project promises to portray even more of Bronson’s intriguing creativity and musicianship.
