Alt-pop brother duo Balu Brigada is back with their latest single, “OH! Not Again,” available now at all DSPs and streaming services HERE.
“‘OH! Not Again’ is about being let down so many times that you can’t even be surprised when you get screwed over again,” say Balu Brigada. “At some point you just roll your eyes and say ‘F*** it, I’m gonna do it my way, because it never seems to be enough for you when I do it your way.’ It’s not the most romantic premise in the world, but there’s something freeing about throwing it all at the wall and having no expectations for the response.”
“OH! No Again” follows the Auckland, NZ-based duo’s critically acclaimed debut EP, I Should Be Home, available now HERE. Embodied by the overarching metaphor of an epic night out, the 7-track EP includes such cinematic tracks as “I Should Be Home“ and “Moon Man,” both joined by official visuals streaming now via YouTube.
Hailed by i-D as “an actual band of brothers making tunes stacked with hooks that’ll run circles around your brain for days,” multi-instrumentalist/songwriter/producer brothers Henry and Pierre Beasley, are habituated to finishing each other’s sentences both in everyday discourse and in song. The Beasleys have spent much of the past few years creating a unique future-facing sound of their own, prioritizing dual vocals, prominent bass hooks, and punchy drums while showcasing a left-of-center pop sensibility and natural ability to skate genres. Tracks such as “Preview,” “How It Would End,” “Number One,” and “Favourite Clothes“ – all included on I Should Be Home – have already earned applause from such outlets as Coup de Main, i-D, and Ones To Watch, which praised their “soaring falsetto choruses, synth hooks and an irresistible, underlying groove.” In addition, an exclusive OnesToWatch live performance and Q&A – filmed at Everybody’s in Auckland, NZ – is streaming now via YouTube HERE.
