Every week, a different FADER editor compiles a playlist to highlight a new release and give you a guide to that artist’s web of influences and peers. These Staff Selects live in our Spotify app, alongside GEN Fs from our archives and playlists for each issue. This week, it’s Alex Frank on brothers inc.
One thing that adds to the already sizable mystique surrounding avant-R&B crooners inc. is the fact that the duo is a set of lookalike brothers. You’d be hardpressed to find non-siblings that could sound this uncannily, almost creepily synced, and the beautiful harmonies of their newest song, the first single from a forthcoming 2013 album, are so evenly matched that it’s a sort of hypnosis, making the two like two shaved-head sirens lulling you sweetly off a cliff. So in that spirit, we rounded up all the siblings in music we could think of, many of which are also master-harmonizers in the way that only blood relatives can be.
