hmv's Next Big Thing... #223 Remo Drive
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you brothers Erik and Stephen Paulson, better known as Remo Drive...
Who Are They?
Brothers Erik and Stephen Paulson have been making music together since childhood in their native Minnesota. Initially, they formed Remo Drive with friend Sam Mathys and went as far as recording their self-released debut Greatest Hits with him. Now though, it is just the Paulsons, who are newly signed to Epitaph and preparing to unleash new album Natural, Everyday Degradation.
What Do They Sound Like?
This is scuzzy, raw rock and roll, but with sunny edges. Take the power of The Black Keys, the drive of Daydream Nation-era Sonic Youth and Weezer's taste for a chorus, and you've got something like Remo Drive
Why Should I Be Excited?
Power and pop colliding perfectly is always a good thing.
Can I Hear Something?
Damn right. Their new jam 'Around The Sun' is below:
