From the off-set, Brothers brings out the big guns as a glistening display of chiming synths disperse, giving way to electro-washed guitars, pummelling drums, and lead singer James Robinson’s commanding vocals. Emotive and compelling, it’s the kind of ambient, arena-ready production that makes you long to hear it live.
And if you’re at the Humber Street Sesh Festival in Hull today (1 August), you can do just that as AFFAIRS will be returning to play at the city where four of the members went to university. They’ll also be playing in Manchester on 4 September. For more ticket details, head to their official website.
