Grit-pop duo Thanks Brother release their much anticipated

new single 'Call It Love'. Produced by Grammy Winner

her debut album The Secret Life of Blue, and John Broe,
formerly the writer and singer with Irish band Miracle

on the collaborative project Thanks Brother at the beginning
Since their inception the duo has been busy. Their first
Irish tour in March boasted five sold-out shows and
ended with support slots for The Coronas and singer-songwriter
Gavin James, in addition to gigs abroad in France, the
UK and the USA. They also co-wrote The Coronas' single
'Find the Water', and directed and produced the accompanying
video. In fact video production is something of a sideline
for the band, having produced and directed videos for
Declan O'Rourke and Glen Hansard too.
Thanks Brother has also been praised by the press, with
Hot Press calling 'F*ck My Life (FML)' '
slice of indie-pop with a chant-along chorus."
Hype Magazine also lauded single 'We Are Different',
calling it '
an anthem for the turbulent times
in which we live that takes up the mantle of the disenfranchised
and marginalized and celebrates being different in any
The long awaited EP includes the band's first three
singles; 'We Are Different', 'We Caught It' and 'F*ck
My Life' along with brand new tracks 'Call This Love'
and 'Better This Way'. Limited run physical copies will
only be available at shows.
