We are Broverdose--a four-piece band on the precipice of releasing our new self-titled EP. This Project is a four-track album produced by Frans Mernick at the Ish Lab, located in DUMBO, Brooklyn. We are trying to raise enough money to complete production. With your thoughtful donations we will be able to release this project in May 2012! Thank you for your support.
Welcome to Broverdose!
Boasting an eclectic array of
songs blending ’60s psych, neo-folk, ambient moods and indie rock with sweeping
atmospheres, gritty textures and lyrical intrigue, Broverdose escaped New
York’s urban wasteland of Binghamton, a city once target of the Russians during
the Cold War.
Broverdose, which features principal songwriter/guitarist/vocalist Nick Bodnar, drummer Brendan Dunn, bassist Brendan Plesha and lead guitarist Chuck Yovino, joined forces in 2008 and quickly became a staple on the local frat and party circuit. While honing their chops, those parties exemplified what the band didn’t want: To play cover tunes and generic rock for the uncaring masses.
The band’s original music takes an entirely different direction. Bodnar’s musical wanderings traverse a myriad of paths as he dips a finger into the psychedelic vial, brushes the dust off homespun folk and nibbles bubblegum rock’s cardboard edges. Plesha was raised on hip hop and rap. Dunn gets off on funk and grooves while Yovino goes for indie and electronic music.
“The sum of the parts isn’t at all like the sum of our influences,” laughs Plesha.
“I don’t how, or why it comes together as it does,” Yovino adds, “but for us it works.”
Add up the dynamic qualities that drive this band, or strip them down and analyze the individual pieces. Maybe even look behind the couch for the answer. But with Broverdose it always shakes out the same, no matter where the song gestates: This band makes some damn good music.
