Brainstory share new single “Hanging On” featuring Clairo

Brainstory recently announced their new album, Sounds Good, will drop on April 19th via Big Crown Records, the full-length was produced by Leon Michels aka El Michels Affair. The video for “Hanging On” was shot on film and directed by Abraham Recio (Musty Boyz), and also features dancer Gabriela Maldonado, and Michael Alvidrez on congas.

Today, the group have shared “Hanging On” featuring Clairo on backing vocals. The Latin / Psychedelic Soul-inspired tune was influenced by the 70’s Chicano rock that they grew up listening to like War and Malo. And, of the collaboration with Cottrill, the band note: “It happened rather organically… We met Claire through Leon and whenever we would be in New York City, she would always come and hang out with us. When we were tracking vocals she agreed to lend her sweet voice to make the song that much better.”

Brainstory is Kevin Martin and Tony Martin – brothers by blood, and Eric Hagstrom – a brother through their music and long term friendship. Their initial connection comes from the heady mixture of jazz performance-focused music school and the grind of playing local shows, but their bond has been strengthened through countless hours on the road touring and the making of two studio records—2019’s debut full-length, Buck, followed by 2021’s Ripe EP.
