Brenda channels the vintage sound of ‘50s rock ‘n roll, the angular gruff noise of ‘90s indie rock, and straightforward feel-good pop — like an interesting fusion of Built to Spill and The Walkmen. Their songs are both thrilling and sweet as they travel through dynamic, rough raucousness before sailing into smooth, catchy melodies. In the past they’ve shared the stage with acts like Grizzly Bear and The Flaming Lips, and just last summer upon hearing a rough cut of their debut album, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, invited these Portland, Mainers to play the first Solid Sound Festival in Massachusetts.

Silver Tower is the debut album by Brenda.
