Brothers

No, I’m not going to talk about my brosef. I’m going to talk about the band Tanlines and their song “Brothers.” Not that my brother isn’t worth talking about.

I haven’t listened to the entirety of Tanlines’ album, Mixed Emotions, but I have listened to the first two songs on said album and I really, really enjoy them. Don’t ask me why I haven’t given their other tunes a chance. I think part of me was nervous that the rest of the album wasn’t going to be as good as the first two songs so I might as well quit listening while I’m happy. Nice logic on my part.

I love this style of music–electro indie rock pop whatever. It really speaks to my soul and makes me happy. The band consists of two dudes from Brooklyn. I find their sound really refreshing and different from the top 40 tunes that are always on the radio and playing on the speakers in drugstores. Not that I frequent drugstores….

Their song “All of Me” is upbeat and catchy. I can’t put my finger on the right words to describe their sound in this tune. It almost has a retro feel paired with it’s electronic beats. 

“Brothers” has the same quality, but I like the vocals a little bit better because they sound deeper and they resonate more. This song isn’t as dance-able as “All of Me” but it still has a great beat that keeps you coming back for more.
