New Music: The Belle Brigade

3 May

I have to thank Brett Dennen, for the introduction to this band, The Belle Brigade. From the first time I heard “Sweet Louise,” I was hooked.  Comprised of brother/sister duo Ethan and Barbara Gruska, their sibling relation allows for a seamless transition in vocals and harmonious sound on each track.  An easy, breezy tone throughout the self titled debut album also makes for a perfect soundtrack to listen to under the summer sun.  I believe Paste Magazine sums it up best in their review which you can read HERE.  Be on the lookout for the rise of The Belle Brigade.
