Brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence began their first American tour as Disclosure a few weeks ago. At only 17 and 20-years old respectively, they have been making music together over the last few years, releasing singles and short compilations along the way. Disclosure‘s production roots are in an updated version of two-step UK garage and funky house but have more recently offered bouncy synthesized outputs wrapped with poppy undertones.
San Francisco’s Independent was one of the first stops on their tour and the brothers were greeted by a packed venue of fans desperate to hear their unique blend of pop and UK garage. Stepping out just after 11:30pm, Guy and Howard played face-to-face rather than towards the crowd. With a dizzying array of laptops, drum machines, and keyboards the two gave listeners almost an hour and half taste of their sweet synth-heavy British tunes.
