Peter Krogholm @ Beehype put Brother North’s debut album on their Best of Icelandic Albums in 2014, along with Dad Rocks!, Óbó, Sóley, Oyama, Singapore Sling, and Sólstafir. Awesome!!!
“Icelandic/Swedish duo Brother North have been making music together for a decade with the culmination so far being the release of their great folk and post-rock self-titled debut last year.
Hollie Dogherty @ The Revue (Canada)
“Hidden Gem: Brother North…Featuring delicate acoustic guitar accentuated by cello and piano, the pair deliver a brief yet beautiful collection of atmospheric melodies. The album takes the listener on an intimate, 29-minute journey with eight songs that feel like the gentle caress of soft sunlight. This is a tranquil album that conjures the smell of summer, the feel of wet grass and fresh air…Brother Northmay reside in the northern cold of Sweden, but their music inhabits a sunny soundscape that is peacefully warming. And it is startling that they remain unsigned, but possibly not for long” –
Rock Bandom (UK)
“Fantastic rock/folk/pop/ duo and we mean fantastic, with there melodic beautiful sounds accompanied by some super vocals these guys are a real pleasure to listen to. Vocally supreme, Lyrically superb and the music is second to none” –
Nitesh @ Atwood Magazine (USA)
“Their harmonies and layered sounds wrap around you like the heat from a fireplace on a cold, winter day”
Ben Crowther at Spiral Earth (UK).
“The vocals throughout the album are beautifully suited to the sounds the duo create in their compositions and the inclusion of brass and strings give the work scope and sends the pair on musical flight over the Northern Scandinavia they so fondly write about”
And so on and so forth for others:
