Sugary melodies and vocals that you will be in the back of your head all day at work or school

Biography

With their soaring vocals, huge guitar hooks, and anthemic choruses, Brandenburg has created their sound by combining pop/rock energy with melodic sensibility. On their debut EP "Everything You Wanted And More", Brandenburg delivers a diverse, yet solid set of songs that showcase their wide range of influences. From the hard rock of "One For Love, One For Loss", the melodic pulse of "My Dream, Your Memory", the sing-a-long anthem "This Dancing", and the lush and delicate soundscapes of the title track, Brandenburg has songs that are for every type of listener and are catchy enough to get caught in your head after only one or two listens. Consisting of brothers Pat (Bass/Vocals) and Phill Hood (Drums), as well as school friends Steve Stocker (Guitar), David Heinrich (Guitar), and Jimi Filipovski (Guitar), Brandenburg is willing to work hard to reach their goals and gain listeners wherever there are listeners to be gained. Although they have only been together since May 2005, they have already performed with several national acts such as Quietdrive (Epic Records), Boys Like Girls (Red Ink/Columbia Records), Jupiter Sunrise, Park (Lobster Records), and Kaddisfly (Hopeless Records). Despite all of their accomplishments in the short year and a half they've been together, the band knows that achieving all of their goals will take much more hard work and determination. In other words, Brandenburg won't settle with letting themselves become a "memory".

Lyrics

This Dancing

Written By: Alicia Stocker

Only she knows what it's holding
Only she hears his cry
Oh so here it goes again
Flooding the tabletops
Only keep your papers from sticking
Only you could remember all of this
I feel so lonely

We only have this dancing
We only have this dream
You can't walk around it
You can't look it in the eyes

You know it was only pieced together
The folder held it sweetly
What a neverland, a lovely thing
So please don't pull me back
Don't extinguish my flame
The paper only knows my secrets
The paper feels the same
Let's forget this

We only have this dancing
We only have this dream
You can't walk around it
You can't look it in the eyese

So please don't pull me back

You only have this dancing
You only have this dream
I'm only here with memories
I only have tonight

Something You're Not

Written By: Patrick Hood

You know it's time to go
It's time to put yourself together
And smile for the camera
You're alright
You are just fine
It's alright
You just don't show it

Look so good, but it's only a mask
You try to be perfect but you're not that
Because you're all wound up with everything
From everyone
I know that you want to be such a part of everything

You know you're finding out
The only way to make this better
Is quit while you're ahead now
You're alright
You are just fine
It's alright
You just don't show it

You look so good to me
But I just have to say

Look so good, but it's only a mask
You try to be perfect but you're not that
Because you're all wound up with everything
From everyone
I know that
You want to be such a part of everything

Let's just get down to business

Everything You Wanted And More

Written By: Patrick Hood

It's time to stand up and fight
It's time to do what you think is right
You didn't hear me before
That's why we're backing it up for more
It's time to stand up and fight
It's time to stand up and fight

This is what you want
This is what you need
This is everything you wanted and More if you believe in me
And I will stand by your side
For whatever reason you need me to
And I will say a prayer for you
If that's what you want me to do

This is what you want
This is what you need
This is everything you wanted and More if you believe in me
This is what you want
This is what you need
This is everything you wanted and More if you believe in me

(Everything that you wanted)
