Meet Nashville-based (by way of Phoenix) up and comers Brotherun (aka Trevor and Nick Tillery).
Taking two very different musical journeys, Trevor embarked on songwriting whilst at college in Seattle and spent years in a rock band in Phoenix that ended up receiving major label attention, whilst Nick taught himself how to play drums by joining a thrash metal band (also in Phoenix).
Like all good rock musicians, the brothers’ lyrics are full of organic emotion. As well as being genetically bonded, both have a real love and knack for songwriting.
Their new track, ‘Wishful Thinking’, started off as a guitar riff that was laid to rest for a few years, then brought back to the table with their producer Josh Niles. The synthy track has an unsteady beat as the brothers sing about an almost unattainable or impossible desire.
The artwork for their debut EP (also entitled ‘Wishful Thinking’) perfectly showcases the imaginary journey through Brotherun’s 4 subtle and ever-humble tracks. The EP is available for purchase on iTunes now. Have a listen below:
