The Halcyon Brothers

The Kingfisher is a small bird with a cleft beak and brilliant plumage. It feeds on fish, which it captures by diving.

Halcyon is a poetic name for a Kingfisher. It is said that the floating nest of the Halcyon brings calm to the cruel sea.

The Halcyon Brothers decorate the weight of the world in a charming and medicated disguise. The sound embraces with a clinched smile, and then stumbles and occasionally falls only to somehow prop itself back up for another round. The naked and soaked emotions reveal a need for rather than a dispersion of serenity.

Centered around founding members Bjor6n Oranj and Bosky Rumbluffer, The Halcyon Brothers have released the albums A Dusty Bible Leads to a Dirty Life, Butterflies with Bayonets, Whisper the Moon and the Stars Will Revolt and Set Upon by Satellites. Other contributing members have been, and maybe will be, Zack Scott, Dorje Lamb and Ted Eastman.

The Halcyon Brothers are part of the art collective known as This Isn't Just a Cult. Learn more at
