BROS is made up of brothers Ewan and Shamus Currie, of the platinum-selling Canadian band, The Sheepdogs. The duo returns with a new single, “Theme From BROS”.
“‘Theme From BROS’ is inspired by our love of 70's cop cinema and the film scores of composers like Lalo Schifrin,” explains Ewan. “The opening riff was originally conceived by Shamus as an Afro-Cuban guitar line, but really came alive when orchestrated for trombone. It’s the action-packed soundtrack to the cop movie that never was.”
Along with the action-packed soundtrack, they unveiled a video, which was animated by L.A.-based Rob Fidel, who has been thriving in the L.A. art and film scene as a production designer and animator, becoming notable for his music videos.
“Rob is a bud, who we met in LA through our good friend (and collaborator) Mat Dunlap who does all our art design work,” says Ewan. “Rob is a very creative guy who is also musical and that makes all the difference when it comes to collaborating on a music-based project. We made him a big long list of ridiculous things that we could be doing in the video, but asked him to basically make us look like badasses. As far as I can tell, he damn well nailed it.”
