Younger Brother is an electronic duo formed in 2003 by Simon Posford and Benji Vaughan. Their debut album A Flock of Bleeps was released in 2003 followed by Last Days of Gravity in 2007.
After making a remix for a charity record Simon Posford (Shpongle, Hallucinogen) and Benji Vaughan (Prometheus) decided to come together in the studio to create their own type of electronic music that is generally described “unclassifiable”.
The album A Flock of Bleeps released on Twisted Records became a cult classic in the underground electronica scene and included such tracks as ‘Crumblenaut’ and ‘Finger’. This led to massive demand to see them live and they have played shows in London to Tokyo, New York to Moscow.
Inspired by the live shows Simon and Benji decided to move away from the pure electronic sound of the first album A Flock of Bleeps and create a more organic sound. Having no band they played the instruments themselves and recruited long time friend and former Leftfield vocalist Ru Campbell to perform the vocals. The resulting album was Last Days of Gravity (with artwork made by the legendary Storm Thorgerson whose work has graced albums by Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons, and Led Zeppelin, among many others) release in 2007 narrowly missed out on the 2008 Mercury Music Prize and received masses of positive press. They also returned to play shows with the "Younger Brother Live" band which included Marc Brownstein (The Disco Biscuits, Electron) on bass, Tom Hamilton (Brothers Past, The American Babies, Electron) on guitar, and Joe Russo (The Benevento/Russo Duo, Bustle In Your Hedgerow, The American Babies, Electron) on drums in Japan, the US and played a sell out show to 3,000 people at the Brixton Academy, London.
2009 saw Younger Brother produce “Phoenix on a Diamond Sky” for British cult film Heartless, directed by Phillip Ridley and due for release in 2010. A successful US tour took place in July, which included a headline set at the Camp Bisco Festival and saw them play to 8,000 people.
Younger Brother are currently in the studio recording material for their 3rd album due for release in 2010.
