“Just oozes on out with so much grace. It feels like a big weight’s been lifted off the shoulders. It’s got this smooth sparkling power to it. It’s got a bit of wonk too. Big love!“ – Claire Mooney, triple j
“Hanlon Brothers are known as local heroes for a reason. What they have going is truly unique, and there is no other band on the Gold Coast with as big or as loyal of an audience. They can hold a crowd of thousands in the palm of their hand.” – Michelle Christoe, NightQuarter
Gold Coast Hip Hop trio Hanlon Brothers return with their largely anticipated, explosive new sophomore single Show Yourself.
Entering a new era and expanding their sonic sphere, Hanlon Brothers feel they have finally found their true sound. The recording of the groups new music was an intensive 24-month process of experimenting with new cadences and refining their songwriting skills.
“It all came together in our purpose-built studio where we wrote, composed and cooked up an exciting new soundscape that gives off an international vibe while remaining uniquely Australian,” explains Saia Hanlon.
If debut single Solar was the sunrise, their second single Show Yourself is the sunset. Keeping the chill-hop elements and sensual bass lines but adding a repetitive yet dark hook. The relationship between the push and pull of the hats and kick is the same with the lyrics with the relationship between two people.
Born and bred in the 4220, these naturally gifted brothers burst onto the Gold Coast scene to a flood of local success. Earlier releases earned Hanlon Brothers quick acclaim with a swathe of Queensland Music Award (QMA) nominations including Song of the Year and Gold Coast Music Awards (GCMAs) including Emerging Artists of the Year. In their various early iterations the band went on to support acts as diverse as Amy Shark, The Cat Empire and The Veronicas. Renowned for their incredible energy and chemistry on stage Hanlon Brothers have also performed at Byron Bay Bluesfest and Woodford Folk Festival.
With a focus on strengthening their new sound, the Hanlon Brothers already have a killer combination of raw talent, versatility and flawless technique, and the potential for the future is limitless.
