Brooklyn-based, soul and indie-pop act, Bree and the Whatevers have debuted their music video for the single "Homewrecker," also the title track from their upcoming EP. Bree Klauser and her partner, Dan Kessler, who is also a keyboardist of Morricone Youth, and is an alumnus of Berklee College of Music.Their recent EP is reminiscent of a variety of Motown influences, including The Supremes, The Temptations, and Smokey Robinson.
The lyrics to "Homewrecker" is an ode to Klauser's relationship with Kessler, that went from friendship to falling in love, and was arranged and performed with Kessler and producer, Scott Hollingsworth; known for his work with Sean Lennon, GOASTT, and Yoko Ono. What you get is a four track EP filled with funk and soulful songs.
What makes Bree unique with her music is that she was born legally blind with a condition called Achromatopsia. She has drawn upon her hands-on creativity, as fans will notice in the video for "Homewrecker." The video was shot and directed by Carly Schneider, and along with the music video debut, there will be a digital download of the single, a live performance, and music video viewing held at Lovecraft NYC, with event information here. Tickets can be purchased here. The full EP will release in early 2017 through London independent label, Montiel Records.
About the video for "Homewrecker," and an exclusive statement for AXS, Bree says that "This is our first ever music video and it was a really exciting process. We loved working with Carly Schneider. We had a blast writing the storyboard and shooting it. I feel like it is a perfect backdrop for the music we have created here.”
