Unfortunately there’s not a lot to say about Athens-based Brothers. A relatively new band, Brothers has yet to put out a full-length release and their Reverb Nation page is somewhat lacking in the info section. I suppose they leave most of the talking up to their music. The handful of songs they do have out leave the listener (or this one at least) itching for more to sink our ears into. I find myself constantly returning to the few songs they have released, and I find something new in them with each listen. Brothers utilizes traditional pop instrumentation (electric guitars, bass, drums and keyboards) and lots of reverb to create intricately crafted lo-fi-ish indie pop/rock tunes, but their unique style certainly sets them apart from the vast field that is indie pop. Their songs consist of catchy riffs and melodies and make excellent use of dynamics, building up and reaching an emotional climax. I believe their lead singer/guitar player (whose name escapes me) was a music composition major here at UGA, explaining the well-crafted nature of their songs. Look out for these guys at WUOGfest on November 8th at Caledonia Lounge!
