Stormsands - BRB - Stereo Stickman

Stormsands BRB


Freestylers Stormsands bring back the simplicity of rhythm and bass, with a quirky soundscape and fearless vocal adlibs, for BRB.

Sisters Hailie and Jodie Sandstrom, born in 2014 and 2010 respectively, bring an unrivalled degree of youthful freedom to the genre. Their debut single and video BRB showcases a clear love for the playfulness of creative performance, with both artists delivering their best rhymes and flows throughout a bass-heavy electronic arrangement that’s both minimalist and instantly recognisable.

“We both already knew some musical instruments like piano & we started just making beats one day. We enjoyed it so much we had to make more. That’s where it all kinda started. Since then, we’ve just been learning & trying out different styles & rhythms.”

From melodic synth riffs to the boldly distorted bassline and cinematic sound effects, the production of BRB helps elevate the freestyling capabilities of Stormsands in a way that feels like an art-rap alternative to the current scene. The whole thing is fun yet focused, conceptually unlimited yet also distinct and relevant to its own central sentiment – complete with a satisfying resolve back to that hook idea of BRB.

Given how young both Hailie and Jodie are, BRB speaks volumes on behalf of the confidence, freedom and optimism of their approach, and will no doubt lay the foundation for an entertaining upcoming repertoire.
