The musicians have not forgotten their intimate DIY house show performances since attending school at The College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY. They have release 2 independent albums, as their songwriting continues to blossom into a style all of their own.
Bruiser and Bicycle is an Albany-based band, originally formed as a quartet, currently with two members, two guitars and a kick drum. Their influences range from Alex G, Built To Spill, Modest Mouse, Pavement to The Beach Boys and Fugazi. The 21 and 22 year-old musicians recently released their 2nd album "Woods Come Find Me." The band recorded every single part of each song into one microphone, which remained in place in the center of the room throughout a three-day period. Atwood Magazine states "Built on raw DIY energy, Albany duo Bruiser and Bicycle's 'Woods Come Find Me is a delightfully alternative, fantastically fun time."
