JEFF The Brotherhood

Here's a look at JEFF the Brotherhood's new video for "Hey Friend", directed by Lina Plioplyte. The song comes from the duo's latest slab of unadulterated rock 'n roll, "We Are the Champions," out on their own Infinity Cat Recordings. Recorded by Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo, Sleater Kinney, Velvet Underground), the self-produced album digs into what Spin calls "the sweet spot between punk and hard rock."

JEFF The Brotherhood is Jake and Jamin Orrall, two Nashville-based brothers who have been playing music together their entire lives. The duo's rambunctious live shows have made them one of the most talked about bands at SXSW for two years running, using nothing more than Jamin's three drums and Jake's three-string guitar. They just finished up a tour with the Greenhornes, and next up is a tour with Fucked Up, along with a round of dates with metal legends Pentagram. If you like to rock, these guys definitely need to be on your radar.

Check out a tune from their new album, plus one from the Daytrotter Session:
