Alternative duo Brevin Kim is back with their third installment, High School Football, and showing audiences why we should keep our eye (and ear) on them.

Come Up

Cal and Bren Paulhus, the brothers behind Brevin Kim, got their start by honing their skills in their home studio. Initially, they focused on developing their unique sound. The duo’s efforts paid off with the release of several well-received projects since 2019.  Moreover, they gained a significant following with their 2020 EP, No Less Than Three, which showcased their eclectic blend of genres. Their collaboration with Lil West on the single “BLEACH” further cemented their status as an up-and-coming act to follow.

High School Football

Brevin Kim’s latest album, High School Football, offers listeners a wide breadth of suburban melancholy. Each song coaxes the listener to conjure long-forgotten memories, some painful. Furthermore, it demonstrates the duo’s growth as musicians and their commitment to pushing boundaries. Perhaps the album’s most striking aspect is its impressive use of voice. Specifically, Cal and Bren’s vocal styles complement each other seamlessly, which creates an immersive listening experience. Additionally, the brothers’ skillful lyricism paints a vivid picture of modern life and its emotional complexities.

“It Was Nice To See You,” while not one of the most-listened songs, seems to function as the emotional core of the album.  Understated and nostalgic, it was an interesting choice for the first track of the album. Overall, the songs vary greatly, but each appear to include an underlying sense of sadness or dissatisfaction. In terms of instrumentation, the album boasts a rich sonic landscape. For instance, the duo effortlessly blends electronic and acoustic elements, resulting in a unique sound that sets them apart from their contemporaries. The varied production styles keep listeners engaged throughout the album, ensuring an enjoyable experience from start to finish. Ultimately, High School Football is an album that displays the best of what Brevin Kim has to offer that leaves the listener waiting on a new release.
