If you like good backstories, Brooke and Brit Graeff have quite a saga. The twin sisters from Sarasota, Fla., formed Good Graeff in 2004, winning their high school talent competition. The pair made college money busking on the barrier islands; guitarist Brooke studied film arts in Toronto, while cellist Brit majored in international business/marketing in Florida. Five years ago, Brit was teaching English in Vietnam and invited Brooke to join her; they restarted their musical pursuits and acquired an enthusiastic fan base. Back home, the twins launched a Kickstarter campaign that funded their debut EP, which led to opening slots for the likes of Plain White T’s and Mates of State, countless festivals and incessant touring. Good Graeff’s new EP, Good Job Go, spawned its latest single, “I Want That,” which inspired MTV to comment, “Think we may have found our new favorite act of 2015.” Beyond the headline that MTV still cares about music, Good Graeff has great Pop hooks to accompany its great tale.
