‘Dearest Brother’ is a beautiful folk-pop anthem, building with intricate, delicate guitars before breaking into sky-high choruses and soaring harmonies, creating a gorgeously compelling sound that the band have christened ‘mountain pop’.
Shot in stark black and white, the accompanying video follows the steps of a troubled protagonist culminating in a gripping and poignant climax.
Regarding the single and its video Firewoodisland say, “‘Dearest Brother’ is a song of compassion and tough love. It’s about watching friends getting hurt by bad decisions, letting them know that you’re there for them and about taking the brunt – as long as they do something to help themselves.
The video is a journey of self-discovery following a young man’s story line of relationship, loneliness and shadow boxing. Filled with raw and bitter emotion, what happens when our hero faces up to his biggest enemy?”
Firewoodisland kicked off their UK tour in support of ‘Dearest Brother’ last night at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters, the band will play the Exchange, Bristol on October 21st and finish at The Nest, Bath on October 28th. Tickets are available through Music Glue.
