First Play: Bros, Vol. 1

Judith Lynch

Brothers Ewan and Shamus Currie (The Sheepdogs) are part of a new musical project — appropriately titled, Bros. The project, and eventually their debut album Vol. 1, came out of some down time that the brothers had in 2014 prior to recording The Sheepdogs' more recent album, Future Nostalgia. While similar in tone and tightness, Vol.1 is very obviously not a Sheepdogs record. It's the sound of The Sheepdogs cutting loose, experimenting and expanding their musical range. A sound that's evident on the album's second track, "Brazil."

"Brazil is an escapist's fantasy loaded with horns, hooks, and harmonies,” says Shamus Currie in a press release. “It's a song born out of listening to too many samba records on cold, dark, Canadian winter nights."

Vol. 1 will be released Oct. 14 on Dine Alone Records. You can pre-order the album here.
