Brother is a band that plays what they describe as "Mongrel Rock". Their style incorporates electric guitar, Scottish bagpipes, and an Austrailian Aboriginal base line from the didgeridoo, with vocals. They frequently experiment with different instruments and techniques (an electric "bagpipe" chanter?) to create a totally unique sound. Angus and Hamish Richardson, the two brothers that founded the band, frequently include strong social commentary in their lyrics.
