BROS – “IT’S CHRISTMAS DAY”
A VERY BROS CHRISTMAS (2017)
December 25, 2017
Yes it is!
Spill Magazine would like to wish a very Merry Christmas to you and yours. Happy Holidays!
BROS is the new project from Ewan and Shamus Currie, front man and keyboardist, respectively, for platinum-selling Canadian band The Sheepdogs. Although they are indeed brothers, the name was chosen with tongue firmly planted in cheek, a reflection of the 10-song self-titled debut album daringly expanding their sonic range in unexpected and playful ways.
The origin of BROS goes back to the winter of 2014, just after Ewan and Shamus relocated to Toronto from Saskatoon, and prior to The Sheepdogs recording their most recent album, Future Nostalgia. Finding themselves with some downtime, the pair started working on some experimental demos that drew from influences ranging from Badfinger to Latin music legends such as Gilberto Gil and Os Mutantes.
