Good sons of Warrandyte, Regional Victoria and absolute DIY tale of the ages The Teskey Brothers have represented their country well on the international stage over the weekend, climbing their way to the dizzying heights of the US iTunes chart, finding their way to a comfortable #5.
The group, which started off as buskers in Melbourne, will be celebrating the release of their sophomore record, Run Home Slow next month.
Now, we can only imagine they’ll be celebrating in Lamborghini’s wearing fancy top hats and smoking cigars given their debut album, 2017’s Half Mile Harvest, all of a sudden climbed it’s way to #5 on the US iTunes Charts, as per TMN.
Better still, the band didn’t get there by some fluke. They damn well earned it.
Demand for Run Home Slow’s older sibling rose exponentially following a smooth performance from the group on CBS This Morning as part of their Saturday Session segment, and a slick introduction from the host to boot. In support of the new album, the band which features brothers Josh and Sam Teskey, performed current single ‘Man Of The Universe’.
The American’s simply couldn’t wait, and snapped up the groups debut in anticipation.
Making it even more touching, the group maintained a DIY attitude throughout the creation of their debut, going as far as to self-produce the thing in a home studio. Already going to great lengths to blend together soul and blues seamlessly, that’s a awful lot of extra work for the band.
Upon releasing their debut, Australia was aware of the greatness it was dealing with when it came to The Teskey Brothers. Half Mile Harvest debuted in the ARIA Top 20 back in 2017, and scored a #1 on the ARIA Independent Album chart. They also copped two awards at that years Melbourne Music Awards.
