Single Review: Brookes Brothers – ‘Last Night’/’War Cry’

2 min read

London’s Brookes Brothers are set to end the year on a high with the collectives latest glimpse of what’s in store with their forthcoming 2011 debut album as they prepare for the release of their new single Last Night/War Cry.

BrookesBrothersLastNightComing together as a double A-side release, Last Night is an orgy of instrumental and sound effect experimentation. A spacey production fused with electronic splendor from the get-go, Last Night marks some pretty high expectations for the outfits 2011 record.

The featured track is perfectly paired with the bands second single monster, War Cry. This time the boys tone it down slightly and replace the trance glossiness with a Drum’n’Bass number held together by some grinding, almost grime laden bass and complimenting middle eastern vocal chants that give the track a real foreign vibe.

I have to admit that it took a few listens to both Last Night and War Cry for me to fully appreciate what these lads are attempting to achieve here but both tracks, particularly War Cry, grow on you very quickly.

Last Night screams for a club setting and has already proven to be a fruitful addition to the dance-floors in the underground club world. And it’s no surprise really that the leagues of 4am clubbers have taken the track under their wing and made it a DJ favorite to give Brookes Brothers enough steam to be driving into 2011 with an optimistic outlook.
