Et Tu Bruce’ release Suburban Sunshine
Et Tu Bruce is a 4 member band that comes to us from West London. They just released their fourth release entitled ‘Suburban Sunshine”
In this overly saturated genera/market with a plethora of artists coming out of the woodwork, armed with nothing more than a PC, Microphone, a guitar and a crappy sounding CD – it’s nice to know there are a few bands and artist out there that can still deliver what I call good, quality music. These new artists I speak of manage push their music out to the world and much of it do I dare say is substandard to say the least. So what do bands like John Mayer, and Jack Johnson have that Et Tu Bruce don’t? Not much if you ask me save the multi million dollar promotional machines and major record label support. Et Tu Bruce breaks the mold with their impressive sound and delivers music that has a deep seeded Psychedelic Pop-Rock roots. The playing from Et Tu Bruce: Jamie White (Guitar/Vocals), Matthew O’Toole (Guitar/Vocals), Darryn Bruce (Bass) and his brother Craig Bruce on Drums is rock solid and the production value is as good as it gets for an Independent Artist. Musical overtones that will remind you of acts from The Barenaked Ladies to The Beach Boys to The Byrds to XTC. But honestly let me say there’ isn’t a band out there right now that can toe to toe with Et Tu Bruce insofar as having the vintage UK flamboyancy. Right now after hearing their music and checking out a few of their past songs – they are the ultimate good time UK Invasion band out there right now. I don’t say stuff like that often. All in all a well rounded CD that has much to offer the listener. Aapparently there are still a few bands and artist out there believe in delivering good music that doesn’t sound like a commercial.

Et Tu Bruce stands out from other Indie-Alt Artists in a good way within this very saturated singer/songwriter market. Their answer to boring. trivial music is to deliver something unique with a breath of fresh air, a nice easy flowing signature sound and a honest message to call their own. The strong suit of Et Tu Bruce is their laid back charisma and their ability to write you a clever piece of music via solid musicianship, and messages that speak to all the senses. One would be wise to keep a watchful eye on him over the years to come because they could explode in the US. At the end of the day Et Tu Bruce is one of the best bands to slide across my desk this year. Et Tu Bruce truly has something special to offer music a fans all over the world – especially those that still believe in good time Rock n’ Roll.
