Brahms Premiere New Single, Head On Tour

Brahms have only been an official band for less than a year, they are continuing to make themselves heard in the indie world. Side A of their upcoming 7″ single, “Add It Up,” just premiered as a free download on Stereogum, the same blog which named them one of their “Bands To Watch” in May 2010. “Add It Up” is a strong and dark synth-based dance song with haunting vocals and only promises good things for the band’s debut LP, expected later this year. Get the song HERE.

Meanwhile, the trio left the confines of Brooklyn on January 12th for the next few months to tour the US (and a couple of Canadian cities) alongside Twin shadow and later, Asobi Seksu. Be sure to check if they’re coming anywhere near you.
