New Jersey-based indie pop-rock duo Brick + Mortar are thrilled to release their new single Saturday Night after partnering with Billboard to unveil it one day in advance just yesterday. Billboard went on to dub the track …a song that has the power to send shivers down your spine and simultaneously make you tap your foot to the beat. The band is no stranger to this acclaim, having found the perfect medium for their raw, gritty lyrics and upbeat instrumental charm. Additionally, the track has been featured on Spotifys official New Noise playlist alongside Bishop Briggs, grandson, Joywave, and several other buzzing artists.
When asked about the Saturday Night, frontman Brandon Asraf said: Live fast, stay high, feel rich and dont die. Saturday Night is my ode to Americas drug culture, a song about self destruction and delusion that I sing to myself as I overindulge in whatever my vice may be that day. I feel like anyone who has dabbled in drugs has had that moment.
Saturday Night is available for purchase / streaming now at the links below.
With over a decade of grinding under their belt, it’s no surprise they’ve received an infinite amount of support from the likes of Earmilk, Noisey, Nylon, Perez Hilton, Pigeons & Planes, and Vice. The band has toured relentlessly and shared the stage with some of the top players in the game including Manchester Orchestra, The Front Bottoms, Imagine Dragons, Awolnation, Phantogram, and Jimmy Eat World while also performing at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bunbury, Riot Fest, and many more. Their most streamed track on Spotify, Locked In A Cage, has+5 million plays and was featured on MTV’s Catfish, HBO’s 24/7 Pacquiao-Bradley, and Need For Speed: Rivals. A handful of songs from their collection can be heard on Hitman: Agent 47, xXx: Return of Xander Cage, CBS’ Elementary, and CW’s Tomorrow People to name a few.
Brick + Mortar is an independent band from Asbury Park, NJ. The band consists of long-time best friends, Brandon Asraf (bass, vocals) andJohn Tacon (drums, electric samples, vocals), who bonded as teenagers over their mutual love of music and sense of alienation. The pair built a world for themselves musically by combining catchy melodies, eclectic electronic elements, and intense live instrumentation. Brandon’s lyrics draw from his struggle to cope with issues of abandonment, anxiety, depression, and being the son of an international fugitive and con man. As the band matures, they continue to explore darker themes of the human condition with the intention of encouraging empathy, positivity, and self-motivation. Brick + Mortar’s energetic live performance paired with the visuals and antics of Richie Brown form a circus-like stage-show pregnant with psychological subtext and celebrations of the strangeness of existence.
