Songbroker Song of the Day : Calico Brothers - 'Could Not Be More Wrong'

After playing shows in the barn of their family farm in Waitakere, Calico Brothers broke into the modern music scene in 2008 with their debut EP, God Left Town.

With great reviews, shows throughout New Zealand and the inclusion of the title track on the double-platinum selling ‘Outrageous Fortune’ soundtrack, February 2009 found the band in the studio with a bag full of new songs and other things.

The result was Tell it to the Sun, which fuses Jimmy Calico's homespun intonation with Chet O’Connell’s twanging Telecaster guitar. Added to this, Jeff Calico’s Merseyside bass playing and Robbie Calico’s humble drums form the perfect foundation for keyboardist Fran Johansson to interweave baby grand, Hammond and Wurlitzer.

Listen to the Neil Youngesque track 'Hold On Love' here:
