“Br’er is one of the all too rare bands seeking to make honest music outside of fashion, hype or influence. This is creative expression that still sounds fresh and exciting. A captivating experience that surrounds the listener and gives a lasting impression.
Deviation marks a turning point in the evolution of Br’er. The music expands upon their previous ‘City Of Ice’ and features several alternate versions of songs from the album. This is the band’s last full length release before shifting into a more electric and heavy sound. Acoustic guitar, violin, cello, harmonium and auto harp give this album a very human and vulnerable quality. Dark subject matter over beautiful and hypnotic arrangements. Music worth hearing multiple times.”
