Canadian outfit, The Bros Landreth, made up of Joey and Dave have returned with their latest record ‘Come Morning’. What strikes me upon first listen is the spacious and somewhat dreamy soundscapes they create with the production and arrangement which gives the brother’s melody room to breathe.
It opens with the laid-back ‘Stay’ which draws upon their experiences of life on the road. The chorus melody gets stuck in your head after one listen, what sounds like a hammond B3 lays the foundations for the vocals which is a lovely addition.
The stand out track comes in the form of ‘Don’t Feel Like Crying’ which features Leith Ross. The emotion is raw on this track, the organ and slide guitar helping to create a sense of loneliness and longing. As for the collaboration, it was as if Leith was made to sing with the brothers.
Despite this heartbreaking addition, the overriding theme is one of positivity as the up-beat ‘Drive All Night’ shows. The level of musicianship on this track in particular is exemplary.
This record is The Bros Landreth at their very best, and we’re looking forward to watching them bring these songs to life in a live setting as they tour in September.
