By on January 15, 2013



LA quintet He’s My Brother She’s My Sister has offered a sneak preview of its Nobody Dances in This Town debut LP, out next week with Park the Van Records. Stream and embed the Nobody Dances in This Town album at TeenVogue.com. The band will kick off a nationwide tour this week, adding 20 new markets to its previously announced West Coast run. Beginning on January 17 in San Diego, CA, He’s My Brother She’s My Sister’s tour will include a hometown CD release show this Saturday, January 19 at The Troubadour, performances at SXSW ’13, and a southern stretch of dates. Full list of tour dates below.            


This past fall, the group made two appearances at Austin City Limits Festival, premiered a cover of The Mamas And Papas’ “Straight Shooter” via Prefix, and their “Touch the Lightning” single was featured as a Starbucks iTunes ‘Pick of the Week’ receiving 267,775 downloads. Featuring sibling vocalists and a tap dancing drummer the band exudes the earnestness of folk, the colorfulness of glam rock, the rawness of blues, and the theatrics of cabaret. Brother and sister Robert Kolar and Rachel Kolar split vocal duties, with Robert on guitar and kick drum and Rachel on tambourine. Lauren Brown adds full-body percussion with her simultaneous drumming and tap-dancing. Oliver Newell plucks the stand up bass with joyous flair. Aaron Robinson plays lead guitar on a lap slide. The eclectic troupe has shared the stage with Neko Case, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Charles Bradley, The Blow, Local Natives, Dawes, Dr. Dog, My Morning Jacket, and many others.
