You Have To Get Up & Dance To Brother Brad’s ‘Get Around’ EP

Mingling with the finer details of funk, reggae and indie-rock, Brother Brad is the definition lighting in the bottle. They’re light-hearted and so very fun, making their music so incredibly infectious. ‘Get Around’ is their new EP and it fully encapsulates this band’s fantastical rebranding of genres.

Having made people move since releasing the EP’s opus pieces, Gotta Be and My Girl, Brother Brad have learnt from their toe-tapping live show and made an EP that attempts to recreate that feeling in the studio. After all, they didn’t make all 250 punters at The Lansdowne dance for no reason. They recorded the EP in a makeshift studio Newtown—a converted townhouse designed to be lived in, absorbing the music and good vibes.

The best part of Brother Brad? The ever-present horn section in each track. Often playing a critical role in the background, or making a vital appearance for a killer breakdown, like in opening track, Gotta Be, the horns is Brother Brad’s best asset and they use them to their absolute advantage.

To Brother Brad, the EP is a celebration and enrapture of his city and the culture context in which it surrounds. A not to far cry off the wonderful Blue Line Steppers event and compilation album put together by Of Leisure.

‘Get Around’ is an ode to the charm and seduction of Sydney’s Inner-West. The EP encompasses a point in time shaped by political and social change, personal loss and heartache, and a healthy dose of partying for good measure,” explains Shaun Bradley, guitarist and songwriter for Brother Brad.
