An epic, melodic shimmer of chiming guitars and a group vocal power that all rise to a critical mass... That’s the ultra-sonic persona this band of New Jersey brothers achieves on each of their recordings, a signature sound (vaguely Brit-influenced?) that resonates with optimistic energy. “Addicted...” is an undying pledge of adoration (“I can’t believe how much I love you!”) and has an uplifting energy that would keep a TV ad afloat. Even “A Thousand Tiny Cuts,” despite its theme of acceptance and resignation (“I guess I’ll be the scapegoat”), is positive in its impact. The band’s sound wore a bit thin by the time we heard “Scarecrow,” so the Brothers Union might look to add another dimension to their work.
