Some bands are recognized for their outstanding live show, others for their prowess in the studio. Philadelphia's Brothers Past garners accolades on both fronts, emerging at the forefront of electro-rock with a willingness to blend various styles seamlessly into an original sound. Yet, whether live or in the studio, the art of songcraft is the prevailing element in their music.
The Manhattan Project
The Manhattan Project is a forward thinking electronic duo that has exploded on to the scene. Using technology from the past and present to create music of the future, the band has created a sound all their own. Analogue/Digital, Organic/Electronic. Armed with an arsenal of keyboards, synths, electronic and acoustic percussion, this live electronic duo plays what has been called "intelligent dance music". Drawing influences from dance hall, house, dub, drum n bass, techno and lounge, The Manhattan Project brings sophistication to the dance floor with their original compositions, high energy beats and mind melting textures. Live visuals by NGB create a multimedia concert experience for the mind, body and soul. Their Debut EP "Atomic Bomb Party Vol. 1" was released in late November 2009 as a free download to great reviews! The Manhattan Project features Shawn Drogan on drums and electronics, and Charlie Lindner on keyboards and synths.
