The Cactus Blossoms


The Cactus Blossoms are The Everly Brothers, take two. At least, that seems to be the consensus in the comment section of the band's YouTube music video for "Stoplight Kisses," an old-school country throwback that tells the sweet story of smooching at a red light. "It is a great sound and I am sure that Phil and Don [Everly] would be proud and flattered. I just hope these guys don't fight each other like the Everly Brothers did," wrote commenter MrHillBilly49. At this point strife doesn't seem likely, though as Mr. HillBilly would no doubt point out, The Cactus Blossoms might be tempting fate as yet another brother duo. Its second album, Easy Way (Walkie Talkie Records), debuted on March 1 to applause from Rolling Stone, which cited the "freak of genetics harmonies" and "Roy Orbison-meets-Television" sound from brothers Page Burkham and Jack Torrey. "We still haven't found a way to take inspiration from the future," Burkum joked to Rolling Stone. Listeners don't seem to mind.
