Indie folk band Brolly set to release their new EP “Wolfe” on September 23rd

Brolly is an indie folk band based out of Northern California. The band is comprised of vocalist/guitarist Jacob Ithurburn and childhood friends guitarist Cody Martin and bassist Jacob Michaelis. The current lineup is rounded out by Australian transplants Kristen and Chelsea Famularo whom Jacob became fast friends with on his travels abroad. One of their most exciting accomplishments to date has been having their song “Hollow Home Rd” featured on BBC Radio 1 by Huw Stephens and a mention on NME. Brolly will release their second EP Wolfe September 23. The album was mostly self recorded by the band and in part by producer Dryw Owens (From Indian Lakes, Culprit, Consider the Thief) and mastered by Dan Coutant at Sun Room Audio (Hostage Calm, Candy Hearts).

Wolfe, their follow up to 2012’s Hollow Home Road reinforces the band’s inalienable, ambient, indie folk sound. Hollow Home Road was self recorded and released independently in June of 2012 and quickly after, the band began laying the groundwork for their next effort. The band inhabits a small house where they are constantly working on crafting their songs adding piece by tiny piece to the tapestry of each song. Their writing and recording process for Wolfe was long and thorough with every sound is explored and every idea exercised. Brolly’s multi-layered arrangements are in a constant ebb and flow. Each part adding tension and release. Michaelis and Famularo’s minimalistic yet driving rhythm section is complemented by Martin’s lush guitar work. Ithurburn’s haunting vocals are layered by Kristen and Chelsea Famularo’s careful harmonies. Wolfe poetically narrates Ithurburn’s encounters with heartbreak and loss of innocence and the need to make beauty out of these experiences.

The band will be touring the west coast in support of Wolfe and is currently writing their next record.

“You can describe them as four young men with pain in their hearts. Like, melodic pain not stabbing pains. Their ‘Hollow Home Rd’ track is stunning. It has certain Bon Iver styke of beauty about it.” – Huw Stephens for NME

“What more can I say about Brolly than please do have a listen to them, undoubtedly they will mesmerise you and you’ll fall in love with their music.” – BittersweetSymphonies.co.uk
