Brick + Mortar Premiere
“Brighter Than the Sun”
Video on PopMatters
“A wickedly intense, searing slice of indie rock, one that displays a darker, more sinister side than most indie that comes out these days.” – PopMatters
“It’s a catchy yet chill indie-pop cut. The fact that only two guys are behind this wealth of sound is pretty incredible.” – Noisey
“…indie duo Brick + Mortar’s new video will have you reliving your most intense, amorous memories” – NYLON
Brick + Mortar’s John Tacon and Brandon Asraf have been building a movement. Spreading a message of empathy, positivity, and self-motivation. The two have been playing gritty, bright yet sinister, witty alternative pop for inspired audiences throughout the country. The duo has had a whirlwind summer with the release of their brand new EP,Dropped, and a nation wide summer tour.
Today they are thrilled to premiere their beautifully presented, twisted new video for “Brighter Than the Sun” on PopMatters. The video opens with the loving words of a mother speaking to her young daughter. The accompanying track, “Brighter Than the Sun” feels upbeat and fun but also hints at something gritty and rebellious underneath. As the story unfolds, the innocent girl transforms into someone dark and searching for vengeance.
This is the third music video to be released from the new EP and a fourth is soon to follow. With dynamic videos for “Train” and “Staying Gold” already circulating, “Brighter Than the Sun” stays true to Brick + Mortar’s cinematic sensibilities and will satisfy both film and music fanatics alike.
