Brevin Kim’s double single release is available now: Stream
Boston duo Brevin Kim returns with the release of double singles, “I Need Water” and “He Doesn’t Love Her.” While exploring different song themes, the tracks cohesively serve as the latest indication the group consisting of brothers, Cal and Bren Paulhus, are pushing through an exciting forefront of genreless music.
Containing strong elements of alt-rock with electronic production and pop vocals, “I Need Water” is a metaphor for seeking mental clarity from the existential anxieties that can cripple 20-somethings, like death and the meaning of life. Produced by Pnkblnkt, the song is an experimental rager with distinct synths and a thumping kick drum. Listen below.
“He Doesn’t Love Her,” a song about the polarization of a relationship and not realizing what you had until its gone, contrasts the two-track release as a darker and slow-burning contemplative piece. Led by organic and electronic instrumentation, the track is chilling and chameleonic in its delivery. Produced by Johan Lenox and Andy Seltzer, the downtempo track presents another side to Brevin Kim’s artistry and makes a strong case for their rising status as must-watch new musicians.
The two-track release follows the duo’s collaborative EP, Metallic Body Language, with Lil West. While the last two years have already drawn millions of streams for the Boston-bred brothers, their unique approach to music will truly reach its first peak on their upcoming album.
