BROKOF is an alternative folk rock band based in Berlin, Germany. The 4-piece released debut Softly, Softly, Catchee Monkey in 2010. Sophomore album Side By Side (LP, 2012) opened the bands work to a wider audience as it was highly praised by critics and shortly got them nick-named Spree-Beatles. „Put simply: in Brokof, one of Germany’s most interesting folk-rock bands awaits discovery.“ wrote german STERN.
With Eviction Notice (EP, 2015) BROKOF offered a first glimpse of third album Cool Fame (LP, 2016) and toured Europe with the EP as a giveaway to their fans. The ROLLING STONE saw Cool Fame related to the work of CSNY and The Who and called it „plain and beautiful“.
A year later the band released Brother Equal (LP, 2017), a collaboration with american singer/songwriter Random Willson.
Fore! (LP, 2018) was „yet another fantastic release by Brokof: This time, the Berlin four-piece is shaping a more distorted and less romantic version of their Folk-Rock, at the same time everything sways wonderfully, disregarding the outcome; the small form beats the large gesture, Jeff Tweedy style. Again, one can hear how well Brokof play together, allowing the arrangements to breathe, instead of pinning them to the ground. There's "Cabin" a beautiful Wilco-sigh, the snotty smasher "A Ride" or the John Lennon song "Don't Give Up On Me Now" and "The World At Her Feet" venturing far and tripping with synths and psychedelic sounds."
