Cardiff based chamber pop sextet, Among Brothers, have set the date of release for their double A-side single I Am Certain/I Do Not Believe. The single is due for release on November 19.
Among Brothers unleashed their debut EP, Homes, back in 2011 through their own label, Barely Regal Records and have since gained more and more attention in the music scene especially from the likes of BBC Introducing. They followed their debut with single release, Keep, which was released through Kissability and released digitally through Young & Lost club.
I Am Certain was premiered online last month on Soundcloud. You can listen to the track here.
Among Brothers remind me of a band I’ve recently discovered called Digital Antique. Both bands use orchestral sounds in their music which make the songs sound classical to some extent but not classical in the way you are thinking. Once you’ve had a listen to I Am Certain I’m sure you’ll understand what I mean…
By using orchestral sounds in their music, Among Brothers have produced songs that are much more anthemic and cinematic than other bands. I Am Certain is a full bodied, punchy track with great sing-a-long melodic lyrics such as “Part the skin/touch the blade” and “Pursed your lips/kissed the wound/took the pain into your form”. It’s a track you can instantly fall in love with.
I Am Certain/I Do Not Believe is set for release on November 19 through Too Pure Singles club. You can catch Among Brothers live at the following dates:
10th Nov Bristol Fear Of Fiction Fest
15th Dec London Assembly Hall, Islington (supporting Los Campesinos)
