The Rayo Brothers (from the album Victim and Villain available on Nouveau Electric Records)
The Reaux brothers, Daniel and Jesse, began life as The Rayo Brothers to join a songwriter competition in their native Lafayette, Louisiana. Words and music are still front and center when The Rayo Brothers open Victim & Villain(their recent release) with guitar chords and the reading of a lost love letter in “Colorado” while the beat gives “Hard to Tell” marching orders and a banjo percolates over the Rock friendly groove of “Darkroom”.
A rhythmic sway guides the title track, the gentle motion cradling the confessions and hopes of The Rayo Brothers as their tale creates the link between “Victim and Villain”. Rock’n’Roll Pop bursts like a confetti shot to bid farewell in “Goodbye Jane” while Victim & Villain holds back trials and tribulations with “One Good Day”, sticks sharp-picked notes on the sibling-harmony of “The House I Hate”, and walks through “The Dream” amid cascading clouds of sonics while The Rayo Brothers toast on the traditional tune “Rye Whiskey”, joined by Andre Michot and album producer Louis Michot.
