My Sister, My Brother; Self-Titled

If trust had a sound, it'd be My Sister, My Brother.

The three artists formed My Sister, My Brother, not because they'd planned to, but because they had to. They first sat down to write during a songwriting retreat.

They emerged with the song "Nothing Without You," a stunner wtih its heart on its sleeve.

On their self-titled EP, My Sister, My Brother's piano-and-guitar-bedded pop songs explore pain with tender honesty. The EP reflects that dynamic blend of positive and bold.

With hushed reverence, the track "Nothing Without You" offers confessions of brokenness with arms outstretched. "Drive You Home" traverses similar territory but almost serves as a response to "Nothing Without You's" aching call for companionship, promising.

"Forever Now" offers the lightest of moments on the five-song collection, finding comfort in the passage of time and the commonality of experience. Over forlorn acoustic guitar, EP closer "Honest" contrasts wishes with candid failings that may never be overcome.

NEW AND FRESH MUSIC IS ALWAYS A BREATH OF FRESH AIR! BREATHE THIS RECORD IN.

IT IS REALLY STRONG!!
