THEBROSFRESH: “Consequence Remains”

Well folks, it’s finally that time of year; Austin City Limits Music Festival is upon us, so for the next couple weeks we’ll be highlighting acts you ought not miss. And today we start off strong with a six-string sibling escapade. Since their 2018 EP Hereditary, Baton Rouge brothers Thurman and Torrence Thomas have balanced their instrumental, vocal, and production talents as THEBROSFRESH. Lately the Austin duo’s been describing their Shea butter-smooth sound as “GuitaR&B” (like a truncated two-man version of D’Angelo and the Vanguard), but a quick listen to their evolving discography reveals earlier elements of upbeat ’80s-esque synth-pop and unhurried, ’90s-style melody-driven hip-hop.

Even in light of an oft-coordinated wardrobe, THEBROSFRESH manage to breathe freely across a variety of subgenres both in-person and in-studio. And hot off a recent appearance out at El Cosmico in Marfa, they’ll be taking the Tito’s Handmade Vodka stage 1:30PM this Friday at ACL Fest. So prepare yourself for a forty-five minute set of handsome harmonies, pristine pipes, perfectly polished arrangements, and heart-rattling beats with old and new bangers like the nuanced, chillingly-catchy “Consequence Remains”.
