Brownhill to Release Debut Album First Love
Hot off the back of their top 10 radio hit urban single ‘Pretty Lady’, Wellington based reggae band BrownHill are set to release their debut album First Love on 29 March.
An intoxicating mix of smooth reggae tunes with a distinctive pacific vibe, the nine-piece act describe the album as a culmination of their own individual experiences and lessons around one central theme – love.
From the highs to the lows – all wrapped up in beautiful harmonies, up-lifting beats and sunny-side-up lyrics – BrownHill want people to use their music as a “tool of encouragement for anyone facing the challenges that life and love throw at us”.
After individually harnessing their musical abilities through strict church upbringings, BrownHill released their self-titled EP in 2011, and found an immediate audience with reggae fans all over the world.
The support continued to flourish when BrownHill performed with the likes of International Reggae Sensations such as JBoog, Spawnbreezie, Katchafire, Three Houses Down, 1814, George ‘Fiji’ Veikoso and many more, prompting them to record tracks of their own.
So that’s exactly what they did. Throughout 2012, BrownHill were hard at work –mixing raw talent with a stamp of creativity – laying down the groundwork to what would become their debut full-length album – First Love.
In the lead up to the release and following on from a great performance at Pasifika Festival, BrownHill are releasing full Samoan track ‘Ita e ua Lili’a’ today for free. A celebration of their cultural heritage, the track is available for free download from here and check out the new video here .
First Love will be available in all good record stores and digitally from Friday 29 March 2013.
