Sometimes siblings just make the best bandmates, as we’ve seen with countless groups since the dawn of rock ‘n’ roll. This time, the theory is proved by the Brothers Young, a Portland, Ore., trio of brothers joined by three close friends. With shared vocals accompanying its hazy, lilting folk melodies, we’re hoping there won’t be any Oasis-level rivalries to ruin this band’s magic.
Get this gimmick: The Brothers Young is a band which features three actual brothers, actually named “Young.” The group, formed with the encouragement of their elder brother Ritchie Young (frontman of transcendental chamber-folk combo Loch Lomond), brings a darker timbre than Ritchie’s haunting falsetto. Like three Cains to Ritchie’s Abel, the Brothers often sing in a baritone unison, of world-weariness, caution and betrayal—sometimes bursting into open-ended Gregorian harmonies.
