因为和一个澳洲乐队同名而不得不更改乐队的名字,所以变成了现在的Viva Brother,这张专辑中的很多歌曲都已经以单曲形式发行过,如果你有留意过他们,应该对他们的音乐风格有所知晓,个人感觉整张专辑听下来很乏味没什么新意,但入耳度不错,如果你很喜爱britpop,不妨一听。Viva Brother[2] are an English pop-rock band hailing from Slough that was previously known as Brother.[3] The band's debut album is due for release through Geffen Records in August 2011.[4] They were signed to major global record label Geffen Records in October 2010 and to EMI Publishing in November 2010.[5][6] They are currently working with Blur and The Smiths producer Stephen Street.[7]

They describe their sound as “Gritpop” [8][9] and count bands such as Blur,[10] Stone Roses and The Smiths among their influences.[11] However, prior to their debut as Brother the band had gone under the names Kill the Arcade and Wolf Am I. During this time the band wrote, recorded and performed music primarily in the pop-punk emo genre.[12] [13]

Upon playing their debut release - "Darling Buds of May" - on his BBC Radio 1 show, DJ Zane Lowe stated "We like [the song's] classic song structure, it harks back to a time of craft in British song-writing, before the edginess. It’s classic...”[14] Lowe also picked-up on the band's blog site The site featured a video of the band setting-up and playing a guerrilla gig in front of the railway station of their hometown, Slough, along with a promo video they had shot using money they had earned playing local gigs.[15][16] Lowe's playing of their demo resulted in the band being signed to Geffen Records.[11]

During February and March 2011 the band went on an UK tour with Indie pop/UK garage rapper The Streets and performed several gigs at the influential South by Southwest.[17]

"Darling Buds of May" was released on February 28. "A Britpop sound but with a 2011 edge" according to Katie Territt of, adding "it’s a song that has all the swagger of Liam Gallagher at his best, all the hype of Pete Doherty at his worst, and all the “gritpop” guitar you’ll ever need. A classic song, and a classic band in the making." [18]

On 5 March 2011, Viva Brother appeared on early morning football show Soccer AM. They revealed that the name for the album was to be named Famous First Words, after discussing it in the canteen just half an hour before the interview. It is due for release in August 2011.

In June 2011, they were forced to change their band name from Brother to Viva Brother due to lawsuit from another band, also called Brother.[2]
