Today is National Siblings day and that got us thinking about some of our favorite LIVE 105 bands that contain siblings. Here are our top 7 …
7. Carbon Airways
French electro-punk siblings Carbon Airways are a teenage brother-sister duo from Paris that make fully mental art-rock and industrial inspired music that would scare the sh*t out of your parents. They are also one of Aaron Axelsen’s “Must See New Bands At Coachella 2014.”
New Zealand synthpop siblings recently dropped their stunning and ethereally-laced debut EP and it’s an absolutely incredible piece of music indeed. They also shared their exclusive video of their recent trip to San Francisco – watch it here.
5. Atlas Genius
One of our favorite bands from Australia, Atlas Genius features the Jeffery brothers with Keith Jeffery on lead vocals and lead guitar and Michael Jeffery on drums.
These sisters came onto the scene fairly recently and are truly a family affair. At their recent stop at the Fillmore in San Francisco they even incorporate their parents into the show! The band consists of sisters Este Arielle, Danielle Sari and Alana Mychal Haim …
3. Tegan & Sara
What is more sibling than twins and Tegan and Sara are definitely our favorite pair. The two have graced the stage for multiple LIVE 105 concerts and their album Heartthrob was one the best of 2013.
2. Kings Of Leon
The Nashville alternative band recently rocked SAP Center in San Jose and headlined last year’s LIVE 105 NSSN and are – much like Haim – a family band. The band consists of brothers Anthony Caleb Followill, Ivan Nathan Followill and Michael Jared Followill along with their cousin Cameron Matthew Followill.
In the nineties Oasis may have been the biggest UK band in the world. Their brand of Brit rock dominated the airwaves and arenas around the world with brothers Liam Gallagher (vocals and tambourine) and Noel Gallagher (guitar) being the main forces of the band. The unfortunate part was that the two brother fought constantly throughout the life of the band and that conflict doomed them. Today, Noel is touring and recording solo and Liam is fronting the band Beady Eye.
The White Stripes – We know they were not siblings but there was always a bit of mystery behind the relationship of Jack and Meg White.
The Ramones – The classic New York punk rock legends all performed with the surname “Ramone.” Over the years that included Dee Dee Ramone, Johnny Ramone, Joey Ramone, Tommy Ramone, Marky Ramone, Richie Ramone, Elvis Ramone, and C. J. Ramone. None of The Ramones were related in any way.
