Toronto-based indie folk septuplet Beams has released Be My Brother, the debut single from their upcoming full-length album, Just Rivers. The lush instrumentation and lovely vocal harmonies hide the fact that lyrically something altogether more discomforting and baleful lies beneath the surface. It gives the band an edge that many of their contemporaries in this field either lack, or are unwilling to find.
The digital single also includes a rather unusual, but compelling cover of Portishead’s Glory Box.
