Alt-rock quartet Leopard Rays offer simmering sibling tension in alt-rock tune ‘Brother’


Leopard Rays shouldn’t be underestimated. The Hartlepool based quartet comprises of Luke Dawkins (vocals), Sean McCloskey (guitar), Tom Pattison (bass) and David Wilcox (drums).

With plenty of live performances under their belt: Stockton Calling and playing the inaugural Heelapolooza, the boys have quickly attracted a big fan base from up and down the country. Not only this, but they have also gained support from BBC Introducing and supported and played their own headline shows in some of England’s biggest cities.

Emerging out of lockdown with a heavier, fiercer sound than before, ‘Brother’ explodes as soon as it begins. You’ll be hooked from the opening guitar and Luke’s snarling vocals, the simmering rivalry between the brothers is right in your face, but it never boils over.

I’d love to be in the audience when ‘Brother’ is first played live, imagine the scenes!

Featuring as the second single from the band’s forthcoming EP, it’s the first song Leopard Rays have written altogether. And I’m sure if you love Brother as I do, you’ll be ecstatically awaiting the EP to be dropped.

With a tune this big it certainly deserves to be played loud.


Don’t underestimate Leopard Rays because I am 100% certain they will be the name on everyone’s lips very soon.

Give ‘Brother’ a listen below:
