Two brothers from Lincolnshire are poised to move higher up the ladder of the mainstream British music scene with their debut album set for release this year.

Henry and Rupert Stansall are two brothers in their early 20s from Scunthorpe, and who are together known as Ruen Brothers.

Their latest EP, Summer Sun, is due to be released on 17th July

Summer Sun is the eponymous lead single taken from their forthcoming debut album set for release later this year.

The album was recorded in Los Angeles with legendary producer Rick Rubin.”

He was able to enlist an all-star supporting band to back Henry and Rupert, including Red Hot Chili Peppers’ drummer Chad Smith, Chavez guitarist Matt Sweeney, The Killers’ Dave Keuning and the late Ian McLagan of The Faces.

Ruen Brothers made their initial breakthrough into the main music flow of the music scene with the 2013 single Aces.

Now, they are poised to deliver on the promise of that record with the release of their debut album.

Critics have described their sound as ‘grown-up pop music built on mesmerising hooks and sucker-punch melodies in the vein of the rock & roll classicists they were raised on.’

“The idea for the album was Everly Brothers meets Phil Spector,” said Rupert.

“Summer Sun’ is the perfect taster for the album.”

“It is inspired by Scott McKenzie and sets Henry’s vocals against a swaying backbeat.”

Alongside the release of the new single, Ruen Brothers will also play a series of festivals throughout the summer including Isle Of Wight Festival, Barn On The Farm, Secret Garden and Y Not.

They will kick-off their summer live programme with an appearance at Radio 1’s Big Weekend.
