Among Brothers – I Am Certain/I Do Not Believe Single Release

Cardiff based chamber pop sextet Among Brothers have released their double A-side single I Am Certain/I Do Not Believe.

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 a couple of months ago on Soundcloud but the video for the track has just been unveiled and can be watched below. 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.

The titles to both songs were drawn from the novel ‘We’ by Zamyatin. With this in mind, the band have embarked upon a ‘concept single’ with a narrative theme running through the lyrics of both songs. Following the story of a boy falling in love with a cult member, the lyrics reveal his descent into her world in order to get closer to her.

‘I Am Certain’/‘I Do Not Believe’ was released physically on the 26 November 2012 through Too Pure Singles Club. The limited edition 7” vinyl will be available on the tour and can also be ordered from the following web sites:

Rough Trade

Jumbo Records

Piccadilly Records

See Among Brothers live on the following dates:

15th Dec London Assembly Hall, Islington (supporting Los Campesinos!)

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)
