Great Caesar

Great Caesar (Brooklyn, N.Y.)
Indie Chamber Rock

Though the newcomers of Brooklyn quintet Great Caesar have only publicly released a minimal amount of music, one song has been enough to pull a lot of attention to the group. The track “Don’t Ask Me Why” is a winding, engaging story song for which the band made a riveting music video that shows the pain some go through simply because they fall in love with someone of a different sex or race. The powerful clip has drawn praise from some high-profile people, including Russell Simmons and Deepak Chopra, as well as nearly a quarter of a million viewers on YouTube.
