A wooden dance floor is left perforated in tatters after a 360-degree crowd flock around an unsuspecting festival stage (Fairbridge 2011). On another occasion, walls are scaled over in desperation as last minute fans dodge past security to join a heaving 700 plus size party at the band’s sold out debut EP launch. And why wouldn’t you want to join the infectious rhythms of multi-award winning party proliferators The Brow Horn Orchestra? The high-energy brass n’ beats five-piece play genre defying, dance demanding pop music laced with an irrefutable electric energy, live electronics and a heavy platter of global sounds. Here is a band that stops all in their path, young and old.
Which maybe explains why Brow Horn have been heralded Best Live Act (2010, 2011) and Best Hip Hop Outfit (2010) at the Perth Dance Music Awards, Best Funk Act (2010, 2012) / Best Music Video (2011) at the infamous WAMi Awards and were marked as ‘the next big thing’ by Drum Media before winning the high stakes band competition of the same name. Only a few years into their career Brow Horn Orchestra have already supported / shared festival stages with acts such as Arrested Development, The Cat Empire, Fatboy Slim, MGMT, Public Enemy, Bluejuice, Skrillex, Digitalism, Lyrics Born, Swedish House Mafia, Mark Ronson, Chase & Status, Architecture in Helsinki, Mariachi el Bronx, Regurgitator, Pendulum, Art vs Science, John Butler (solo), Tijuana Cartel, Bag Raiders, Lisa Mitchell, Gypsy & The Cat and Sampology to name but a few.
On record the band too are leaving their mark. Of their debut EP; “Can't Afford This Way Of Life is a tremendous effort and sets the exceptional benchmark of energy and musical talent the band brings to their performances” says Xpress Magazine. Their upcoming second EP Two Fires is out July with a national tour from June 28 – July 15 to launch the record. The leading single ‘Fade’ is out now and free for you to download from thebrowhornorchestra.bandcamp.com. Brow Horn’s music can also be found on iTunes and in good local Perth record stores.
