FOR RELEASE JUNE 23, 2020
LOS ANGELES (June 1, 2020) – The Brothers Landau announce the release of the indie-folk single “Haven’t Got A Name” on June 23. In an age of headlines confronting us with new terrors worse than the last, the single creates a calming place to rest from the day’s news. Gentle strumming circles the brothers’ baritone to bass vocals, sending solace that is sorely needed in our tumultuous time. “Haven’t Got A Name” is the title track off the upcoming EP due out on August 28.
Brothers David and Daniel wrote the song during a time of deep soul-searching. They explain, “It seeks to help everyone examine their emotions if they are feeling overwhelmed and to take a step back to determine if they are focusing on the right things. What’s the reason why we’re here if not to solve problems, figure out life, and further the accomplishments of humanity”
The song lets out a tranquil sigh as introspection smoothly weaves in and out of indie-folk and jazz interludes. Daniel and David’s inquisitive, yet light-hearted, call-and-response vocals waterfall into seamless harmonies only siblings could sing.
The brothers employ the same introspection on the entire EP, coaxing negative emotions into inspiring inquiry of self-reflection about the questions life brings. But that stillness was not always a strong foundation: prior to the brothers writing these songs, Daniel was going through a personal crisis that even led him to question giving up music. Wrestling with a life-altering shift bred increasing dread that culminated in existential panic one harrowing night. Haven’t Got A Name bears the fruits of that turmoil, exploring topics including existentialism, moral dilemmas, and what it means to be a person in a modern and uncertain world.
