Brownbear - What Is Home?
Brownbear is the musical collective led by Glasgow-based singer/songwriter Matt Hickman. After paying their dues on the local scene and rising to “hotly-tipped” status through support slots with The Libertines and The View, the band enlisted ex-Superstar Joe McAlinden to produce their fantastic debut album “What Is Home?”.
A concise and immaculately-crafted collection, the album’s tracks recall the aforementioned Libs/View axis’ upbeat pop hooks, but delivered with a rootsy acoustic drive, the band tipping their hats to Motown and classic pop along the way. Matt’s vocals have all the natural, easy-going charm of prime Lemonheads or Wilco, lyrically confessional and philosophical in equal measure.
“What Is Home?” is released on Vinyl LP and CD formats by Assai Recordings label on April 20th to coincide with Record Store Day 2018.
