Brooklyn’s The Brother Brothers, are announcing their sophomore album Calla Lily today, due for release on April 16th.
An ode to touring, lead single “On The Road Again” sets the stage for the whole record and shows that the many comparisons to Simon and Garfunkel are apt with the immediate warmth of their immaculate harmonies.
The accompanying video follows the brothers out of New York City with a convoy of whimsical animations along for the ride, culminating in a cartoon concert along the Hudson River…
The Moss brothers wrote “On The Road Again” before the world shut down, and serendipitously so. A quintessential road song, it explores the multiplicity of being a touring musician, and speaks to one’s longing for the road, for the connection with that diasporic artist community forged across stages, festival grounds, and long, winding roads.
Speaking of the single, David Moss says; “There’s no denying that life in motion can leave a person lonesome or aimless, but so can sitting still. The same part of our beings that gets homesick aches for life on the road. This song’s an exploration of that duality — a celebration and a lamentation in one.”
Calla Lily 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).
