The Brothers Landau is a Los Angeles based cello-guitar duo that began very simply in 2006 as a musical project of classically trained brothers Daniel and David Landau for a family friend’s Labor Day party. Inspired by the success of the evening, the Brothers embarked on a songwriting odyssey that four years later led to the release of their first album, Parallax, in mid-2010, with a second album in the works.
Parallax, which was recorded at Beer City Studios in Van Nuys, CA between 2008 and 2010, features twelve tracks that capture the Brothers’ signature style. Immediately accessible to everyone without being condescending to the discerning listener, the Brothers consistently utilize dynamics, counterpoint, and catchy melodies to entertain, enthuse, and infuse audiences with an optimistic and soothingly familiar energy, much like being with good friends after a lousy week. David’s cello relates sounds from deep within, ranging from strong and soulful to sweetly melancholic, while Daniel’s guitar provides rhythmic progressions and chords alternately complementary and conflicting, all as the Brothers’ voices bring everything into one unique sonic experience.
Over the time leading up to the album, David and Daniel have refined their sound playing in venues all over the West Coast. The Brothers have completed two tours up the coast, establishing audiences in San Francisco, Sacramento, and Seattle, recently completing a tour of Brazil with Smithfield Bargain. When not touring the lands of the West, the Brothers keep a fairly regular performance schedule, taking their music to the many areas of Greater Los Angeles and beyond.
