BRAINSTORY is a new(ish) eclectic Californian band. They are brothers Kevin and Tony Martin (on guitar/vocals and bass, respectfully) and Eric Hagstrom (drums). Last month they won plaudits for the blue-eyed charmer, ‘Nobody But You’.
The B side of the vinyl release (now good to go) is the sweet slowie ‘Gift Of Life’. It’s an authentic take on Low Rider balladry even down to the soaring falsetto parts. Like ‘Nobody But You’, ‘Gift Of Life’ has been produced by Leon Michels of El Michels Affair. The tune is out there right now on Bandcamp and if you’re a fan of the dusky and downtempo with a doo-wop vibe, you might want to grab a listen. The label is Big Crown.
