Video Premiere: The Teskey Brothers „I get up“
Australian blues and soul band The Teskey Brothers have announced the worldwide re-release of their debut album with Decca Records/Vertigo Records – Half Mile Harvest, out on 26 October 2018. It features two brand new tracks, including the lead single ‘I Get Up’. Half Mile Harvest has been over 10 years in the making and was self-released by the band earlier this year. The Teskey Brothers have been playing together since they were teenagers, and this new album is a collection of their shared experiences over the past decade. It was recorded last year and has been described as a “love letter to classic blues” by Sydney Morning Herald. Originally from The Yarra Valley just outside Melbourne, Brothers Josh and Sam Teskey with local neighbourhood friends, Brendon Love and Liam Gough all share a love of 1960's American soul music. Listening to their album in 2018, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was the work of Stax Records alumni in Memphis circa 1967. Half Mile Harvest was recorded to 2-inch tape and honours the old school Atlantic Records and Motown sound, whilst also working it into something of their very own, with Josh Teskey’s smoked whiskey voice and the band holding an irresistible groove.
