The Brother Brothers Premiere New Song SIREN SONG, Touring with Dead Horses, Mipso
The Brother Brothers have shared their first new material since the release of debut album Some People I Know last fall on Compass Records. Brooklyn Veganpremiered "Siren Song" today, saying "If you're not familiar with The Brother Brothers, they often recall the close harmonies and gentle melodies of Simon & Garfunkel, but they bring just a little bit more twang to it, and this song is a great example of what they do."
The Brooklyn-based brothers wrote "Siren Song" while living in Austin, Texas several years ago. They reminisce, "On the corner of 6th and Pedernales, there were a group of warehouses that were not zoned for living in, but many of us did anyway. Bikes and beers and very little insulation. It was cheap and easy, but not much of a home."
The Brother Brothers' first full-length transcended audiences, drawing enthused acclaim from press including Rolling Stone Country, NPR, Billboard and more, as well as fervent attention from playlists like Spotify's Fresh Folk, Infinite Acoustic, and Front Porch, Amazon's Brushland and YouTube's Coffee Shop Blend. The band spent the bulk of 2018 on the road with Folk Music Awards' Artist of the Year I'm With Her and have scarcely rested since. In 2019 already, they've sold out shows in Los Angeles and Chicago, performed at NPR's Mountain Stage alongside Mandolin Orange and Gregory Alan Isakov, dazzled packed rooms at Folk Alliance International in Montreal, and been selected as official showcase performers for SXSW.
