Vulnerable, honest, ethereal: This is the music of Speak, Brother and their new EP Light Runs After Us will cement their rising popularity in the UK folk-rock genre. Packed with rousing and anthemic tunes full of passionate songwriting and drenched in rich vocal harmony, this EP will stay with you long after first listening.
The Rugby-based trio have been compared to Athlete, Ben Howard and The Swell Season. Their debut EP earned them airplay across the UK and rapturous reception from industry and fans alike. The band played an extensive 2015 calendar of over 100 gigs at venues and festivals all across the UK, including Wychwood and Greenbelt, and they were invited as featured guests at the final of the national Open Mic UK competition.
The new EP features acclaimed singles Slow To Now and Lions Roar: The latter a musical celebration of the sporting legacy of Rugby, the band’s hometown. Lions Roar won support from Wasps RUFC, Rugby FM and the Matt Hampson Foundation, and saw the band debut the track live on ITV Calendar News.
Speak, Brother will be promoting the EP through a 2015 Tour of Homes. Fans can support the group (and find out how to bring them to their back garden) through their Rocket Fuel Campaign.
Watch out as we bring you more from the talented trio real soon.
