A favourite in the Baltic alternative circles for several years now, Brainers is a band which comes from the city of Šiauliai – dubbed ‘Lithuanian Manchester’ for its lively indie music scene. Having chosen a not necessarily rewarding path of playing britpop in Lithuania, these four guys have been performing since their school days. Brainers became popular with the rock club crowd quite early in their career but it took them some time in the studio to achieve the sound they were really happy about. Mixed by British ‘eMasters’ company, Brainers’ first album Disco Balls was released in 2006. The CD features 11 shiny britpop songs – quite unusual stuff for Lithuanian market. With hints of Oasis and The Kinks, Brainers wear their British influences proudly on their sleeves. Their charm is not limited to Lithuanian audiences – Brainers are paving their way to the Latvian scene, playing club and festival gigs.
