Woodstock-based brothers and alternative rock musicians, Atticus & Luke Roness, have recently announced their new name, The Corduroy Blue, and new forthcoming single, “Gimme Love.”

The brothers’ musical sensibilities are rooted in rock and roll, being raised on the likes of The Clash, David Bowie, Queen and The Beatles. These influences led the duo to take to the stage and write music of their own.

Ed Roland, frontman for the Georgia-based Collective Soul and writer of hits such as “Shine”, “The World I know” and “December,” helped to finance the bands debut single, “Gimme Love”, as well as their upcoming extended play release. The bothers said that the single comes from a place of nostalgia and admiration for the great rock before their time, as well as the rock and roll that is still to come.

The brothers got their start in the alternative pop band, AQUASHADE, alongside friend and bassist, Aubrynn Wiseman. The pop trio took to the streets of Woodstock and Madlife showcases.

During the quarantine, eldest brother and frontman Atticus Roness said that started writing music and, in the last year, the band wrote over 150 compositions to their name (many unrecorded). The new songs reflected a new side, or rather an old affection for the rock and roll of their past, the brothers said.

“I want to build the new band just for Luke and I,” Atticus Roness said. “I want to break through the ‘fabric’ of modern pop, built upon the ‘fabric’ of the rock gods we grew up on like David Bowie, Lou Reed, Elton John, etc.”

The brothers said that the word “fabric” would mean more than they knew, as it came back as inspiration for their new name, The Corduroy Blue.
