Ever since the Flight of the Conchords went off the air, there’s been a noticeable gap in quirky comedies about real-life musical twosomes. The Brooklyn Brothers would like to change that for you.
Ryan O’Nan and Michael Weston make up the lo-fi indie duo at the center of the semi-autobiographical flick Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best, which premiered at last year’s Toronto Film Festival and goes into wide release Sept. 21.
The movie, described by Hollywood Reporter as “a road-trip musical for unjaded hipsters and their younger siblings,” features the guys traveling the country in a bid to get their band off the ground and includes supporting roles from the likes of Andrew McCarthy, Melissa Leo, Wilmer Valderrama, Jason Ritter and Christopher McDonald.
And now the (not actually) Brothers, who describe their sound as “the Shins meets Sesame Street,” are releasing their self-titled debut next Tuesday, featuring several songs from the film.
One of those tracks is “Come On Girl,” and we’ve got an exclusive look at the official music video. Take a look at the montage-y clip, which conveniently doubles as a trailer for the movie, in the video below:
