"Good evening, we're the Brummies.”
With that simple introduction, so opens one of the year's most immersive and adventurous rock albums, Eternal Reach. The debut LP by Birmingham, Alabama, band the Brummies – their name is U.K. slang for a resident of Birmingham – Eternal Reach is a musician's album, distinguished by inventive arrangements, lush melodies and straight-to-tape production. Perfectly suited for losing yourself beneath a pair of quality headphones, the record evokes the psych-rock vibe of the Sixties and the soft indie-folk of the Nineties, yet possesses a timeless sound all its own.
Recorded at Battle Tapes Recording in Nashville with engineer Jeremy Ferguson and co-producer David Hopkins, Eternal Reach now serves as the Brummies' stunning calling card. Beginning this summer, with appearances at festivals like Bonnaroo and the Sloss Music & Arts Fest in their hometown, they'll tour the album tirelessly. They've already logged countless miles on the road, playing with St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Kacey Musgraves, the Wild Feathers and, this past fall, NEEDTOBREATHE.
