Brothers Moving

brothers_rooftop_1600x800

In case you haven’t seen them before Brothers Moving are a four piece acoustic rock band who hail from the beautiful land of Denmark.

For such a simple lineup they produce a hell of a sound. A very unique sound, something you hear and immediately say “Ahh the Brothers Moving.”

With a sound derived from the pulse of their native Denmark and honed in and around New York Cities’ Union Square, Brothers Moving is the result of four young, traveling musicians lightening the load of constant road rambling through music. Built on no special concept or genre, their first street show found the group fresh, with no set list, no defined aesthetic, not even a name.

Brothers Moving are:
ASKE: Lead Guitar, Vocals.
ESBEN: Lead vocal, Guitar, Kazoo.
NILS: Bass, Vocal.
SIMON: Cajón, Vocal.

Four guys, two acoustic guitars, one electric bass and a cajón player. And they stir up an amazing sound on this roof in Brooklyn, NYC. This is one of their original tunes. I’m digging it.

This is a very different version of the Sting classic performed underneath the Andy Warhol Memorial Statue in Union Square Park, NYC.

Gonna finish today with their Official Music Video, well produced and uniquely filmed. Another of their own original songs. I’m really surprised this one didn’t take off. Cool groove.

Millie Thrasher

Millie Thrasher is a 17-year-old from Birmingham, Alabama who has what it takes to make it to the very top of the pop world.
She was on X Factor in 2013 when she was only 14, I recall Simon Cowell saying he had never met a Thrasher, or something along those lines. She was molded in with a couple of others to become a girl group, Sweet Suspense, and they made the top twelve.
But now she has gone back to being a solo singer / dancer and has created a couple of really cool videos singing more urban pop than she could do in the group.

Check out this awesome Calvin Harris & Disciples cover.
This gal really kills it, starting with that warm bedroom voice and then going all out as the song progressed. Totally awesome.
Love it.

Oh a Justin Bieber cover, oh well. Much better than the original.
Millie Thrasher also shows off her dancing skills. A well crafted cover.
I’ll be keeping a lookout for the originals, which I’m sure will come.

Sorry
