The Como Brothers Band / Press

“To say the least, this indie band is taking indie listeners and many mainstream pop fans by storm. With a clean look and sound like Michael Buble, the Como Brothers still have their own unique tone and songwriting quality to them that is garnering some much deserved attention. Mix in some of The Black Keys rhythm and you come up with a rare compilation of music in Baby Steps that is The Como Brothers Band.”

“It’s just a matter of time before these guys explode into the mainstream.”

“Baby Steps includes track after track of grade A++ quality songwriting, musicianship, and originality. The Como Brothers create feel good music everyone can relate to. With a blues and rock foundation, their pop sensibilities will have a wide range of genres tuning into these frequencies.

“songs like “Straight Face” are not only completely excellent, but in today’s music business landscape, can become the bread-and-butter of a successful career.”

“the whole of Baby Steps is catchy as hell”

““Baby Steps” is a solid album from top to bottom, with enough variations of pop on the 12 track LP to satisfy almost every pop fan. “Baby Steps” receives a grade A. “Baby Steps - See more at: http://thehotzoneusa.com/entertainment/the-como-brothers-band-baby-steps-album-review/#sthash.yAcHl3M0.dpuf”

"For their debut, Baby Steps is a fantastic and ambitious first album. Laden will horns and intricate harmonies, the Como Brothers Band make you excited for simply what is going to come, because if a debut is already this matured, the sky is the limit for the future."

“How the music is put together alongside the catchy lyrics is a credit to their songwriting ability (which I think is their biggest talent) and I feel is getting stronger which you can hear throughout ‘Baby Steps’.”

“The LP Baby Steps is not only carefully crafted, but aptly named. As with any rock act that harnesses blues roots, the Como Brothers emanate a hypnotic blend. Yet under this jazzy smoke you’ll unearth a mass of pop affiliations. These songsters keep their voices corralled and their instruments in check, boding for a soft, sweet ride, even when the speed increases”

“What comes in this album is an homage to another era with guitar solos dotting every song; however, a sense of restraint as nothing feels like a throwaway on the album.”

"The entire album, however, is full of very strong vocals, and may very well be the selling point of the record. There are some really great hooks and grooves in these songs, like “Straight Face,” but typically the vocals surpass even the greatest instrumental ambitions. "

“This will be another surprise to regular readers of this site as this is easily considered a pop band but by no means does that mean this is the vast majority pop music-this is some real good music”

“Baby Steps is a story told through jaunty riffs and bass lines wading effortlessly through volatile rhythm structures. Honest, flirtatious and raw, The Como Brothers mesmerize via ethereal harmonies and pop-riddled melodies with dance hooks. The album carries a rock’n’roll gusto infused with jazzy elegance and soul in the clever and unique lyrical style. All this, while remaining light years ahead of the stale pop mush being spoon-fed to consumers by today’s “giants” and mere shadows of the past, who parade themselves as the “next big things” – or something.”

“their signature, impossible to duplicate sound remains as catchy as ever. The ingredients: - Captivating pop music, with… - Touches of blues, funk and jazz inspiration, made all the more powerful by… - Two strong lead singers.”

“The Como Brothers have been busting it for years to make it as musicians and have crafted a Top 40 ready sound, complete with breezy production, sweet harmonies, and absolutely undeniable melodies. The terms “infectious” and “can of earworms” come to mind.”

"The Como Brothers Band have excellent song arrangements as well as their lyrics will never be boring. This guitar rock band comes with a significant challenge ahead of them – to transition from a band that is merely a backing soundtrack. This writer/listener believes they have a song within their arsenal down the road that might become the soundtrack to some listeners' lives “.

““Overall, with a production this crisp and professional, the tracks could have sounded scrubbed and perfect like cliche pop music. These songs, however, are so well-crafted that the gloss doesn't distract; they could be right on a Lollapalooza side-stage, or a beach campfire on a couple of acoustic guitars. The Como Brothers Band have that automatic sounding vocal tightness that represents The Speed of Soundoverall. It is what pop rock should sound like in 2012… evolved and without pretense.” ”

““Its gotta be true, I’m growing on you.” The opening line to the chorus on the first track of their upcoming album “Baby Steps”. The Como Brothers Band are back with an amazing jam packed album”

“The lyrics are largely dominant within the tracks uplifting background beats which makes you want to get up and dance. As my foot taps away”

“Upon listening to the NYC duo, The Como Brothers Band, you immediately feel the impressive, cool vibes that their songs emanate. Perhaps it is the striking alternative beats or the bluesy pop offered up for one's consideration that brings the listener into their collection of songs.”

“The new release ‘Still Waters’ EP is an evolution of their debut release and showcases that there is so much more to these guys. It seems that since their first release they have learned a lot and it seems they have strengthened every element of their sound. This has resulted in a very strong release that deserves the attention it is receiving.”

“I have no doubt that many of my colleagues in the music plying trade will dismiss this as disposal pop but I think it has a specific charm and attention to melody and structure which both respects what came before it and looks far enough ahead to be deserving of some listening time.”

“The Como Brothers Band was just selected to play in the Warped Tour (NY) at Nassau Coliseum on July 21st, 2012. They also had the song placed on MTV Real World St. Thomas which is going to air on July 25th. They are in the process of recording the first full length album as they continue to promote the EP “The Speed Of Sound” which is available on iTunes.”

“The Como Brothers improve with everything they do, and with if this is the first time you’ve heard them then it’s a great ice breaker between you and the band! The EP maybe called Still Waters but there’s nothing still about the waves these guys are making in the climb up in their music career, I’m lovin’ it!”

““The immensely cool, windswept cover of The Speed of Sound, The Como Brothers Band’s debut EP, features a ’59 Pontiac Bonneville cruising along the beach in Long Island. The image fully captures the energy and optimism of the NYC based rock trio’s edgy, blues and funk driven vibe and their career trajectory these past few years. And it’s all forward motion from here””

““It’s amazing how much talent this 3 piece brings to the table. The Como Brothers possesses enough musical talent & songwriting prowess to be extremely dangerous in 2012. One would be wise to keep a watchful eye on them. Underneath it all the future looks bright – we shall see. Bring on the Full Length!””

“Still Waters, the newest EP from The Como Brothers Band, does not disappoint!! This sophomore album was anything you could have asked for and then some!! From awesome lyrics to catchy riffs, great vocals to awesome instrumentation, the boys brought it!”

“These guys were truly awesome! Had I been wearing socks, they would have blown off! I Highly suggest that you check them out!

“This is a great album. The music covers a pretty wide range, but overall falls into a general mainstream pop rock category. There isn’t a weak song here and some really shine a lot. The album benefits by the placement of two of the best numbers as the first and last cuts on the set. All in all, this is a class act.”

“After listening to The Como Brothers’ latest songs we were blown away. Combining great songs and a professional images at Song Revelation we’re looking forward to their latest EP with a great deal of anticipation.”

“I guess the best thing I can say about the band is that the album got moved from my review pile into my stack of music I listen to on a regular basis and after a couple listens you will probably latch on to them too.”

“The Como Brothers Band set up the corner of Main Street across from the ferry and played for hours and entertained visitors with their upbeat rock and roll classics. "Nice job – you guys have a great sound and people really appreciated the show! Hope to see you guys again" by Ken Veale”

“I just had to share these fantastic songs from The Como Brothers Band's recently released EP Still Waters. This is quality music of the highest calibre. It is all very much self-produced and independent to the core as well. Their achievements are astounding quite frankly.”

“Their music is fun and positive while still being deep and original. It's their unique clarity and devotion to being true to themselves that makes them artists worth watching. With an upcoming EP and full-length album in the works, we won't have to wait long to see more.”

“There is an eclectic diversity present in which the band makes various constructional decisions but manage to maintain their recognisable panache within each composition. What may seem like relatively minor details make the album adventurous and expressive in a way that engages the audience”

““Up and coming pop rockers THE COMO BROTHERS have a cool new EP out showcasing their best songs as they continue their ascent to being one of the best underground, commercially friendly acts in the country.””

“I Don't Like You Pop/rock act The Como Brothers Band just released an EP 'The Speed of Sound' and worked with Mike Watts, Steve Haigler, and Tom Flynn (Muse, The Pixies, Brand New). The song 'I Don't Like You' has already received close to 800,000 YouTube streams”

“These guys really are a blend of a lot of what is current and popular right now in the pop-rock circuit yet they do it originally, something a lot of other artists don’t do. This is definitely an album worth cruising down the road to with the top down now that summer is rapidly approaching.”

“The Speed of Sound’. This EP is a solid release by the brothers, it showed that these guys have some real talent with great vocals and catchy lyrics.”

“When someone loves what they do, you can see in the results. One listen to the Como Brothers makes it clear how much they love making music. They have a catchy, pop-rock sound that is infectious and original.”

“The Como Brothers Band give a good taste of their abilities on “The Speed of Sound” EP. Some of the material sounds as if it’s on the edge of having real depth, with an authenticity radiating from the band.”

“The Como Brothers Band begin their The Speed of Sound with Underneath It All. Underneath It All is a bold opening for the band, but is one that is ultimately matched by tremendous musicianship. The track bounces between an instrumental and vocal focus; the production of the track allows each piece of the band to shine brightly”
