Flourishing with brass instruments, it’s only a matter of time before BROS’ energetic new song “Theme from BROS” winds up soundtracking an action movie. Real-life bros Ewan and Shamus Currie of the Canadian band The Sheepdogs venture off into duo territory to experiment on their own, and have already found success with their 2016 album Vol. 1.
The comical (and comic-inspired) music video for the song shows BROS fighting off crime, punching Hitler, and rescuing a cat from a tree, giving the track new life and complementing its snazzy flair. The brothers worked with Los Angeles artist Rob Fidel to complete their vision and animate themselves into heroes.
“Rob is a very creative guy who is also musical, and that makes all the difference when it comes to collaborating on a music-based project,” Ewan shares. “We made him a big, long list of ridiculous things that we could be doing in the video, but asked him to basically make us look like badasses. As far as I can tell, he damn well nailed it.”
Ewan elaborates on the song, “It is inspired by our love of 70’s cop cinema and the film scores of composers like Lalo Schifrin. The opening riff was originally conceived by Shamus as an Afro-Cuban guitar line, but really came alive when orchestrated for trombone. It’s the action-packed soundtrack to the cop movie that never was.”
Until we see that cop movie come into fruition, you can listen to “Theme From BROS” on your favorite streaming services now and connect with BROS on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter! Keep an eye out for BROS’ upcoming releases with Dine Alone Records.
