The Wrong Brothers are a London based duo plunging riff heavy knives deep into the heart of Experimental Art Rock. Following a year which saw them open for Barenaked Ladies, One Bad Son, and Texas King while in the same breath completing a run of 17 singles over eight months, the Brothers are on to their next sonic adventure with their new EP Strange Machines. These hometown boys have enough energy to take you to the highest musical heights, so be sure to keep your ear to the streets for one of their many upcoming shows.
Coming off that EP is a song that embodies the manifesto of the Brothers, “Teach Me HoW To Dance”, and today we are excited to premiere it on Glide. The song is immediately funky, bringing to mind the blue-eyed soul of German funk masters The Poets of Rhythm alongside the euphoric, we’re-all-in-this-together soul spirt of Sly Stone. What sets The Wrong Brothers apart is the way they seem to give zero fucks, adding a loose and rowdy garage rock grit with just a touch of blues guitar to what is is undoubtedly funk music. In a time when more acts are going for a polished funk and soul sound, the casual and freewheeling approach of The Wrong Brothers is kind of a breath of fresh air. These London musicians are clearly onto something.
Co-founder Phil Hirst describes the song like this:
“’Teach Me How To Dance’ is very much a song about my experience as a performer; for years I’ve felt like I’m getting gradually better at dancing with each show we play. It’s been incredibly fun, and I’ve become convinced that dancing is the best way to never feel out of place on stage or anywhere really. Groove is a universal language you can speak with your hips, and we want this song to get people excited to dance, especially in places they usually wouldn’t.”
