This week I’m featuring the Westchester/Brooklyn-based duo Phone Home. They are comprised of the Vallarelli Brothers, which admittedly sounds like a plumbing business, but these two are doing something special with the name. Phone Home is an “experimental instrumental” pop group who have been wowing whoever is willing to listen since 2010. They most recently released the EP WAYS in December of 2013 which features a remix track that has lyrics (!!!). I spoke to them in the studio about their musical common grounds, their take on “the vibes”, and their no-talking policy during shows. It’s about to get brotherly up in here!
