Finding yourself is more than just good self-love. When you’re comfortable with yourself, you glow, and that glow is enjoyed by everyone around you.
Grammy-award winning duo Brasstracks is living this truth on its six-track EP For Those Who Know Pt. 1, a beautiful, emotive celebration of jazz horns, romance, and aspiration. It’s about staying true to your roots while realizing your full potential. It’s also the guys’ love-letter to their home, New York City, a place where diverse influences come together to create something awe-inspiring every day.
“For Those Who Know is the first time we’ve felt comfortable in our own skin making a project,” Brasstracks say in a joint emailed statement. “It’s a confessional. It’s a coming of maturity. It’s an ode to New York City. In Pt. 1, you get to know our roots. We poured our hearts into this, we hope you dig it.”
It’s a truly moving experience from start to finish, and not without its fun danceable moments. It’s smart and sexy with features from NYC favorites Robert Glasper, The Underachievers, FatherDude, S’natra, and BXRBER. If you ever need to seal the deal, light some candles and put this one on, or even better, take your honey to see Brasstracks perform For Those Who Know Pt. 1 live on the band’s first headlining tour, kicking off March 16 in the city that made this all possible.
“We’re super excited to announce our first ever headline tour,” Brasstracks says. “Can’t wait to get back on the road and play some original music, and we’re not done announcing. We’ll be announcing west coast tour dates soon too.”
Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 1, at 11 am EST. Check the full list of phase one tour dates and listen to the silky sensuality of For Those Who Know Pt. 1 in full below.
