Album Notes
Brothers was written as a reflection of American drug and gang culture and how it has found it's way onto the streets of the UK. It's a sarcastic reaction to how British youth are trying to emulate their American counterparts but also that the UK has lost a whole generation of teenagers who are disillusioned and lost in the system. This is something that was heavily reported on as a result of the youth riots of 2011 that saw many parts of the UK in flames. This song was recorded almost a month before these attacks took place and is a message that there are other ways to live your life by taking responsibility for your future and ownership of your actions. The track was recorded by Andrew Lawson at Fieldgate Studios, Penarth in the Summer of 2011 and is performed and written by Seun Babatola, Thomas Jones and Anthony Capel.

Awesome Track!
The single 'Brothers' is a culmination of the trademark funk inspired drums, bass lines and cleverly engaging lyrics from front man Seun Babatola. The guitars work really well together and have a really nice tone to them; In particular the delayed parts in the intro and outro stand out. The single captures the fun and energy that makes for an exceptional live performance. This is the start of bigger things for these guys. Watch this space!
