This aptly titled band, comprised of a sibling-based front, recently signed on the dotted line to indie label Park the Van Records and will deliver a full length album this fall. He’s My Brother She’s My Sister’s release Electric Love is a coy yet crafty ditty that will set you in motion. The wailing guitar nods to alt-country predecessors, the bouncy beat doesn’t over-complicate, and the hushed vocals of Robert Kolar set the stage for the more flamboyant chorus bursts that leave listeners electrified. Kolar’s timbre is an alluringly spooky and sexy combination that steadily draws us in; not quite as unsettling as Gosling’s Dead Man’s Bones (Hey Girl, I sing like Elvis), Kolar’s vocals shine with a velvety cool.
Borrowing heavily from the girl group templates of the early ’60s, Electric Love is a familiar recipe but one that makes us love it all the more. It is one of those songs you feel you should know the words to because you are sure that you’ve heard it before – sorry kids, you haven’t. Kick off your Sunday shoes and take a listen, Electric Love, will have you eagerly awaiting the release of this fall’s Nobody Dances in this Town.
