Local musical talents the Broadbent Brothers have been bolstered by the Triple J airplay of their song Ocean Glistening from newly released EP Greedy Man.

The EP was released at Amelia Park Lodge and although the teenagers are not legally allowed to drink alcohol, they have been playing at wineries and pubs for years, covering popular Australian acts Angus and Julia Stone, Hoodoo Gurus and Paul Kelly.

Older brother Tom wrote the three-track EP before a three-day recording process in Bunbury with James Newhouse.

The brothers began busking at the tender ages of six and eight, thanks to their dad, Andy.

“We moved down here four years ago and started playing at the Shed Markets and busking and now we love playing the Goose and Amelia Park,” Tom said. Ned plays drums and provides the uplifting beat heard on the three-track EP.

“I enjoyed the process — James had a lot of drum kits and different sounds, so it was fun,” he said. Lead singer Tom said he had recorded demos before to get the structure of songs but this was their first official release.

“We have been playing the first song, Ocean Glistening, for about a year before recording it, so it’s cool that it’s being played on the radio now,” he said.
