February 9,, 2021: Brooklyn’s The Brother Brothers recently announced their sophomore album CALLA LILLY with lead single, “On the Road Again,” which garnered praise from Rolling Stone, FLOOD Magazine, Brooklyn Vegan, No Depression and more. The Brother Brothers are following it up with the release of their second single “Sorrow,” which The Boot calls “melancholy…full of gorgeous harmonies.” “Sorrow” is a stunningly somber song written pre-pandemic that succinctly delves into our universal struggles with sorrow, for things past, for all that we’ve lost. A beautiful song in its own right, “Sorrow” showcases The Brother Brothers’ ability to spin these everyday emotions into something spectacularly intimate and touching. Speaking to the song, David Moss remarks; “this song sets out to tell a story as old as humanity—sorrow—and to trace the line it travels through all of us.”
The Brother Brothers’ first full-length release transcended genres, drawing acclaim from press as well as fervent attention from playlists like Spotify’s Fresh Folk, Infinite Acoustic, and Front Porch, Amazon’s Brushland and YouTube’s Coffee Shop Blend. The band spent the bulk of their time following their debut on the road, including runs with Folk Music Awards’ Artist of the Year I’m With Her, Mipso and Dead Horses in addition to extensive headlining runs. The Brother Brothers saw sold out venues in Los Angeles, Chicago and London among others, and made pivotal appearances at NPR’s Mountain Stage, SXSW, and Nelsonville Music Festival.
CALLA LILLY was produced and mixed by Grammy-nominated Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers, Brandi Carlile, Vance Joy) at Bear Creek Studios in Woodinville, Washington and mastered by Grammy-nominated Phillip Shaw Bova (Andy Shauf, Father John Misty).
