Following the release of their twelve-song debut LP, Breakfast
have long since proven their prodigious abilities as artists and performers. The eight-piece, New York-based, soul-pop band are not only composing unbelievable, blues-laden, pop-conscious music, but they're working to introduce a contemporary interpretation and amalgam of genres altogether.
At only 18 and 22, siblings, Gracie and Clyde Lawrence already have enough musical sensibility and professional accolades than most musicians could garner in a lifetime. At the age of six, Clyde was the youngest member to be admitted to the Songwriters Guild of America, while Grace is securing noteworthy gigs on both Broadway and television.
Lawrence's video for "Do You Wanna Do Nothing With Me" is not only charming as hell - with the whole band pa-jamming over Gracie and Clyde's remarkable vocals with the help of a brass squirt gun and teflon percussion - but it's unique, and sets the band apart as a sweeping breath of fresh air.
Over the winter, Lawrence was joined on stage by funk icon, Antwaun "The Mantwaun" Stanley (of Vulfpeck) for an impromptu cover of Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground" and "Superstition" that is too damn good not to watch a dozen times.
To be properly blown away, watch the exclusive live video above and catch Lawrence at one of their many upcoming tour dates below:
A special note to New Yorkers, Lawrence will be opening for Vulfpeck and Eric Krasno at Central Park Summerstage on 9/7 at 6pm!
