It’s been five years since the release of The Mandevilles’ last record, Windows and Stones. As a songwriter, you’re proud of every record, but this time they feel the most like themselves. The lead single, “Junkie,” from the band’s upcoming album is steeped in blues, but still rock ‘n’ roll with slicing guitar.
The band cultivated such an amazing working and personal friendship with Neil Morrissey, and his former bandmate Ryan Defoe over the last two years. The writing, recording, and production process has never felt so natural to them. Neil and Ryan’s style of writing and arrangement was very similar to the current line up, so it was an instant connection.
After a few months, they had accumulated a growing list of songs that they had written with the guys. Neil offered his home studio to record the demos and really get what was on paper out loud. The demos became complete recordings. Typically, demos are rough and quick and without any frills. But, they found ourselves becoming more creative and adding the frills that needed to be added, and before they knew it… they weren’t just demos anymore. We’re excited to hear more from The Mandevilles who have more surprises up their sleeve for this year!

The Brilliance give some insight regarding their latest single release:
“Telephone is a song about the universal nature of loss. While the world is turned upside down by a force we don’t totally understand, we find ourselves reminded, more than ever, that we are one big family. More deeply connected than we ever imagined. We dream, we run, we fight, we fall. In this time marked by fear and isolation, may we learn to see ourselves in each other. ”
The Brilliance is going strong and ready to bring us more music in 2020. “Telephone,” is out now, and our ears are pleased and eager for more…

CorbinRandall creates music that seeks to be as genuine and as multi-dimensional as life itself. His sound is inspired by the 60s but with a modern twist; intertwined with complex musical arrangements, yet with a familiar pop influence; reflecting on heavy introspective topics, but through an optimistic lens. Since nothing in life is ever as simple as one emotion or one theme – music should reflect that reality. His new single “In My Sails,” is out today via all digital outlets, and it is a delightful listen from start to finish.
Seeing musicianship in his family from his great-grandparents, to grandparents, and his parents as well, has influenced him to approach music with a deep reverence and purpose. Making music feels like the purest reflection of his soul. When he’s creating, he feels like he’s finally grasping that deep beautiful mystery of music that he dreamed of for all those years when he was younger. The sounds that were such a fountain of joy and wonder, are now something he’s a part of, rather than just experiencing.
