Nothing beats the sweet sounds of indie music, and band Brother is here to prove it with their third album, Volume III. Standing as an ode to the instrumentation-heavy and electric tones synonymous with the modern indie scene, the album is serene in nature as harmonised melodies and upbeat bass’ hope to consume those who hear it. With tracks “I Tried”, “EZ” and “Don’t Worry” showcasing the five-piece band’s undeniable musical abilities, it becomes clear that they are headed straight to the helm of their genre.
“There are a couple of themes that recur throughout some of the tunes that are fun little easter eggs,” explains band member Chuck Emery. “A lot of the songs are lyrically sad but set to more upbeat music. We try to hint again at the sadness by throwing in a lot of descending instruments. Another theme is a lyric of mine that really resonates with me, ‘I never let you down so don’t you forget me now’. It was a lyric I used to throw into my older material, but it is something that has never left me.”
So, should you be in search of a new comfort album to stick on repeat or serene indie sensibilities sure to transport you away from the qualms of day-to-day life, look no further than Brother’s Volume III.
