As everyone in this world, I listened to the new Avicii album. As I heard the trumpets in « Hey Brother », I instantly heard the trumpets from Dan Romer & Benh Zeitlin « Once There Was a Hushpuppy » from the BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD soundtrack (one of my latest favourite movie this year) . Then I compared the two tracks and I discovered: both tracks are in the same key (!) , and some of the harmonies are the same in the two tracks. With a few edits on the Avicii track you could easely re-create the trumpets from Dan Romer’s track. Coincidence, accident, luck, plagiarism? Tell me, Avicii.
Listen carefully to « Avicii – Hey Brother » and check the trumpets from 1:34 till 2:20
Now listen to the trumpets from « Dan Romer & Benh Zeitlin – Once There Was a Hushpuppy » at 1:20 till 2:11
