Rock, Southbound, Groovin the Moo, Future Music to name but a few),
their live show simply cannot be ignored! Why wouldn’t you want to join
the infectious rhythms of multi-award winning party proliferators The
Brow Horn Orchestra?

Now there's a horn section to nod your head too.
- Brendan Maclean, Triple J
This band are what showbiz is all about.
- Miguel Cuevas, Drum Media (Perth)
That was real fresh, reeaal fresh!
- Speech, Arrested Development (USA)
Impossible to dislike.

Beautifully arranged and featuring sweeping keyboard lines and horn
stabs, 'Fade' by Perth outfit Brow Horn Orchestra is a real pleasure.
Reminiscent of blissful summer nights, its soulful and funky melody
instantly elevates your mood. Great fun.
- Alicia Sim, Wire Mag (West Australia)
These guys are going to slay on the festival circuit and on summer
radio. But you should see them first, so you can tell all your friends
- Lachlan Williams, Drum Media (Sydney)
track is a real beast. You've managed to pack a lot into this three-ish
minute tune including a creamy, smooth opening, some stomping
production, charging horns and a twisted rap bridge. All hail Brow Horn
Orchestra. (On single 'Fade')
- Dave Ruby Howe, Triple J
Brow Horn Orchestra's laid back but cheery rock-pop is a warm, fuzzy
ride of good times, no responsibilities and a jolly brass section
- Ellie Freeman, Rave Magazine
The Brow Horn Orchestra certainly know how to make some quality noise.
Every Single Day demonstrates the band's diverse musical talents with
its eclectic mix of brass and rapping proving that they're remarkably
good at exceeding all expectations by keeping their sound fresh
- Naomi Dollery, Drum Media (Perth)
This EP shows that The Brow Horn Orchestra are well on their way to
being a prolific player in the Australian music industry. Can't Afford
This Way Of Life is a tremendous effort and sets the exceptional
benchmark of energy and musical talent the band brings to their
performances. The next best thing is to see The Brow live.
- Chela Willams, Xpress Magazine
I thought I'd play you a song that I really enjoyed, it started off
with a language warning and I thought oh here they go with the swearing
but I found myself really enjoying it and I think the actual language in
it is a bit of a Cee-Lo Green reference, so have a listen out for it.
The band is called The Brow Horn Orchestra and the tune is called Every
- Alex Dyson, Triple J (Breakfast banter)
They're one act you should go out of your way to see live!
- Travis Johnson, Xpress Magazine
This party jam is big, brash and...well, Goliath really.
- Caz Tran, Triple J
They should be seen live by everyone. Again and again and again.
- Anne Johnsen, Fasterlouder
I am no doubt repeating every other Perth music writer who has seen
them by saying they have the potential to be big. Really big.
- Simon Clark, The AU Review
By the time the WAMi award winning Brow Horn Orchestra took to the
stage, Riverside was well and truly chock-a-block as the incredibly
young and talented 8 piece group had the dance floor trembling late into
- Jane Kennedy, ABC South West
This band have
picked up a swag of awards over the past couple of years; best live and
hip outfit at the Perth Dance Music Awards; the best funk act and best
music video at the WAMi awards and Drum Media in Perth has marked these
guys as the next big thing so I reckon it's fair to say that their debut
EP is pretty hotly anticipated.
- Dom Alessio, Triple J
Managing to catch the tail end of Perth's own Brow Horn Orchestra owning
their opening spot on the main stage, we were treated to funky
instrumentals, decent vocals and their popular number Goliath.
- Kristy Symonds, PerthNow
They are essentially the type of mythical triangulation that forty
years ago Kim Fowley (yeah I know. One of those days.) would have tried
to conjure by throwing a bunch of jailbait in a van and keeping his eyes
on the prize. They're youthful, professional and they smile a lot.
There's some brass, phat beats and lyrics which fly out so fast I can't
really pick up on them after a drink or three. Are they the Los
Campesinos! of festival-friendly fistpump frictivity? Is the sky the
limit? I don't know, but with maybe a few more knockout songs, probably.
This is the kind of stuff that, with the right money (or youth-focused
government-funded radio station) behind it, could be on the playlists of
schoolkids nationwide, sandwiched in between Pendulum, Pez, the Kings
of Leon and The Hilltop Hoods. Girls with Australian flag beach towels
should go and see them at the Big Day Out. Faustina Agolley should be
asking them "what's with that name, guys? a hurr hurr" on a Sunday
morning at Circular Quay on Video Hits. If that sounds critical, it
shouldn't. Cynicism might be easy with these guys, but ultimately it's
entirely unnecessary. If you can, you should be singing, dancing, and
playing with their omnipresent beach balls. If you can't, you should
probably just get out of the way.
