Brick + Mortar...who? Why?
Probably you are thinking now "this is just the next indie pop rock band, so what is new this time?" and maybe you are right. Maybe this is only a duo with the next indie pop rock songs but their songs aren't the same as the other. They are better. This is not the only reason why I chose them as the artist of the day. To be honest I have two good reasons why them.
First of all: music because music is always the most important thing. Every song by them is a great mix of perfect and awesome things like rhythms and lyrics, and when you listen to their songs you want to say "that's cool" or "woow!". Simple, isn't it? Fresh sounds and cool lyrics - that's why you want to listen more and more music made by them. Ladies and Gents, this is Brick + Mortar.
Another reason why are genres of their music. I think that all of us are sick because the same "radio songs" with pop, pop/rock or alternative rock sounds. Sometimes it's too much of it. And that's why songs by Brick + Mortar are so damn good - because they are something fresh and unique nowadays. Hell yeah!
I can say only one thing: damn! Why? Because their music can change your mood, your day. I'm pretty sure that these songs will be the best thing to listen to every day, not only this Summer or this year. Always.
Be honest, can't wait for new & cool music by them, because as for me they're just excellent. Also I wish all the best to them and of course I'm keeping my fingers crossed for their future, because they are very talented and I know that they will surprise us yet.
And better remember name of this duo: Brick + Mortar.
Now it's your turn. Go and listen to all these awesome songs and say, is it for you or not.
And remember, if you like any of these songs [or maybe even all of them], show them some love and share their music with your friends and/or with other people. Tell the World about this great music and about Brick + Mortar.
