‘Brother’ is yet another single that represents a band at the peak of its powers. The song leads with an ethereal, wandering guitar riff before the band erupts and frontman Olly Corpe breaks into an effortlessly smooth croon, evoking feelings of vulnerability that blend seamlessly with the song’s lyrics. Bolstered by a punchy, infectious groove and catchy melodies, The King’s Parade reaffirm their ability to combine delicate lyrical themes with a powerful and gritty delivery, calling to mind the sounds of Alabama Shakes, The Black Keys and Leon Bridges.
Frontman Olly Corpe explains the inspiration behind the track:
“‘Brother’ is a track about feeling left behind. The sudden disappearance of someone you hold close to your heart can leave an emptiness that feels impossible to fill. The song is an expression of that.”
