Would you be surprised if I told you there weren’t brothers with the last name Moore in The Brothers Moore?
You should be surprised if they weren’t, because that would be false advertising. Let’s be honest, in today’s society, if you can’t trust one of your new favorite bands, then who can you trust?
Billy and Bobby Moore take the reins (and the namesake) of The Brothers Moore, with Jake White and Troy Smith rounding out this Tulsa, Oklahoma indie rock band. With a sound that’s reminiscent of Kings of Leon’s “Black Thumbnail,” this band has a lot of raw power, but keeps it controlled in clearly defined lanes. You can hear that everyone, from the lead vocals and guitar, to the harmony rounds in the back, has another level they could flip to, but it would sacrifice the harmony they’ve created. It’s almost like Cyclops from the X-Men; he can absolutely level city blocks just by opening his eyes, but knows that the best way for him to work for the greater good is with his headset on and within the confines of a team setting.
If you see a man on the ground
Throw him your hand and help him out
And I think that that’s what we know
It’s so wild when looking into the lyrics that these guys basically have the Mr. Rogers of indie rock songs here. Stay with me here. That’s a compliment in a major way from me. Mr. Rogers was one of the most prolific minds of his time, and the whole idea behind the man was that everyone should just be a good person, help people out, and treat everyone as equals. He famously said, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” The Brothers Moore are basically adding to that sentiment by telling their listeners to be that helper as well.
Look for ways to help today.
