BROOKLYN & QUEENS, NY: Gentleman Brawlers, a Brooklyn 6-Piece, are psychedelic Afro-soul revivalists known for their spooky, stylized tunes drenched in analog tape echo and spring reverb. Drawing influences from throwback electronica and acid rock into their funk-based compositions, the 'Brawlers deliver a live show with plenty of heat, crackling energy, and butt-shaking whomp. While working on the tracks for their first full-length LP (due March 2019), the 'Brawlers have honed their live show on college campuses and the festival circuit. Notable performances took place at Chicago's Navy Pier, Daryl's House, Princeton University's storied Terrace F. Club, Bethlehem's Musikfest, WNYC's The Greene Space, Brooklyn's Knitting Factory, and recently an in-studio appearance on WBEZ Chicago (home of NPR's Wait Wait . . . Don't Tell Me and This American Life). Adventurous art-pop experimenters by trade, the band recently expanded their lineup and narrowed their focus to create a live music project dedicated to just one of the sonic ventures hinted at on previous recordings—the Lagos-by-way-of-Brooklyn Afrobeat sound of their single My Theory—and began performing in NYC jazz & world music clubs as the Gentleman Brawlers Afrobeat Project.
