Soft and light-hearted that’s how BRTHR come to us on their new EP Be Alright. Five songs that carry us from Stuttgart to Memphis. Songs that do you good, give you strength and perhaps that’s why we recommend them.
The single Pouring Rain has already been accompanying us for a few weeks through the unwinterly Hamburg weather. And the title track Be Alright, which was released in December 2021, also catches the ear and inevitably makes life easier. BRTHR consists of two musicians Philipp Eißler (guitar, vocals) and Joscha Brettschneider (guitar) from Stuttgart. They harmonise so smoothly that it is a pleasure to listen to them.
New on their EP are the inconspicuously fitting added horns, which makes especially the track Homeward Bound one of my recommendations for you. Did you happen to catch the Bear’s Den concert at the 2018 Reeperbahn Festival at the Elbphilharmonie? BRTHR reminds me a little of that experience with their new songs.
The sound on Be Alright is almost cheerful, but BRTHR don’t force themselves on us, they caress us and take us into a space where time stands still for a moment. Relaxed and laid-back, that’s BRTHR as fans have appreciated them since their first album 5 years ago.
Together with Max Braun (bass) and Johann Polzer (drums), the band is joined on the EP by Uli Röser (trombone) and Carsten Netz (saxophone and flute). The tracks were again recorded in Stuttgart’s Areal 51 studio. Based at Hamburg’s Backseat label, BRTHR not only bring the sound of Nashville and Memphis to us, but also connect the south and north of Germany with each other. Friends of cowboy soul, deep soft rock or chamber soul should run to the ticket office now.
