Indie-soul outfit My Brothers and I is making big noises up north, recently signing to Portland’s Expunged Records — a label with a long history of working with critical darlings like Blind Pilot.
Label founder Anthony McNamer says he knew he wanted to work with My Brother and I after seeing footage of the band performing live.
“They have those harmonies that you only get from siblings,” McNamer says via press release. The five-piece band features three brothers and two childhood friends.
“After hearing a bunch of other demos,” McNamer continues, “and seeing them perform live, I didn’t need any more convincing. Great things are in store for these guys.”
Listen to track “Na Na Na” and be immediately struck by vocalist David Wurgler, whose silky, emotive baritone recalls current radio mainstay Hozier.
“We’re excited to bring our soul-filled grooves to our friends and fans in Eugene,” drummer Scott Wurgler tells EW via email. “We love nothing more than bringing good times and great music to cool places like Cozmic.”
My Brothers and I play with American Idol finalist Haley Johnson and The Way Walkers 9 pm Thursday, June 25, at Cozmic; FREE. 21-plus.
