The Lost Brothers
Some say The Lost Brothers sound like a ragged Everly
Others say they sound like The Lost Brothers.
It is said that The Lost Brothers formed four years ago
in the summer heat of Liverpool.
It is also said that The Lost Brothers wrote a book of
songs that autumn, and in the dead of winter they recorded
the songs in an attic in Portland, Oregon.
We know that The Lost Brothers released these songs on
their debut album (trails of the lonely) to a heap of
praise from the likes of NME,The Irish Times, Word magazine,
Hot Press, and their fans (losties).
Through the following year, The Lost Brothers have been
spotted in person, performing at Glastonbury, Electric
Picnic, Texas (SXSW), New York, Portland, Toronto, Paris,
