Hailing from the New York City boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens, the group consists of Becca Fox (vocals), Jim Thomson (guitar/vocals), Matt “CK” Walsh (guitar/vocals), Alexis Arkus-Duntov (bass) and David Ashkenazy (drums). They all played in other East Coast bands before the group formed in early 2011, most notably Thomson with Hardly Art/Sub Pop alums Le Loup, and Ashkenazy with the Grammy-Winning Klezmatics. Yes - moderately known indie band Le Loup and the country’s preeminent klezmer band, the Klezmatics. One part harmonically adventurous rock band and one part classic vocal group, The Brawlers pen memorable hooks and sing them in tight 3-part harmony over a musical bed that fuses Thomson and Walsh’s ambient, chiming guitars with Ashekenazy & Arkus-Duntov’s slippery Latin & funk polyrhythms. Led visually by vocalist/dancer Becca Fox’s compelling sense of stagecraft, the Gentleman Brawlers appear determined to contradict the shoegazing indie world’s apparent embargo on showmanship.
