Brazil is the second single from the debut LP Vol. 1 by Canadian duo BROS (not to be confused with the English pop band of the same name), due October 14 on Dine Alone Records.
Although they are indeed brothers, the name BROS was chosen with tongue firmly planted in cheek, a reflection of the 10-song self-titled debut album daringly expanding their sonic range in unexpected and playful ways. Brazil is a chilled tune with a strong 60s vibe, or as frontman Shamus Currie puts it:
It’s a song born out of listening to too many samba records on cold, dark, Canadian winter nights.
BROS is a new project from Ewan and Shamus Currie, frontman and keyboardist, respectively, for platinum-selling Canadian band The Sheepdogs.
The origin of BROS goes back to the winter of 2014, just after Ewan and Shamus relocated to Toronto from Saskatoon, and prior to The Sheepdogs recording their most recent album, Future Nostalgia. Finding themselves with some downtime, the pair started working on some experimental demos. The end result is an album that’s simultaneously comforting in its familiarity, and astonishing in its inventiveness.
