The Brothers Burn – Happy To Be Here

 

Some music defies categorization. The easy genre labels that apply to so much of the music that seems to pollute the mainstream nowadays just doesn’t apply to a select few. This is particularly true of Texas-based group, The Brothers Burn.

 

Making music that is best described as a blend of They Might Be Giants, early Art Of Noise, The B-52s and Seinfeld incidental music, The Brothers Burn produce a sound that is all their own. This is particularly true of their latest release, “Happy To Be Here”.

 

The album kicks off with the catchy electro-pop of “Let’s Go Party With Corrine”, which describes the charms of a girl who “has all the best clothes” and “a box of Legos”, before moving on to describing the events of “March 2020”, when “Twitter blew up coronavirus”. The album continues with shades of reggae and flashbacks to (cheesy) 80s pop.  

 

There’s an innocence to this album but also a knowing irony. Despite its seeming simplicity, the music is a well-spring of references that allows for multiple listens. Just like the aforementioned TMBG, The Brothers Burn offer up what seems on the surface a collection of disposable pop, but that is simultaneously a salute to any thinking listener.

 

And the best thing here is that you don’t have to wait. Released on July 24 and clocking in at just under 18 minutes, “Happy To Be Here” is ready for your listening pleasure now.
