"Brothers & Sisters" is a song by Coldplay, released as their first single in 1999 following the release of the band's first EPSafety, released a year earlier. It was later re-released as an EP. The song has peaked at number 92 on the UK Singles Chart.
After forming in 1998, Coldplay met up with local record label Fierce Panda Records after a representative from said label saw them perform at the Camden Falcon in December of that year. Fierce Panda offered to release their debut single, and the band agreed, signing a short record deal.
According to the single's liner notes, recording completed in only four days and cost the band a lowly sum of £400. The atmospheric sounds on "Easy to Please" were created by setting up microphones on a wet road outside the studio.
1,500 copies of the vinyl single were issued in a special wrap-around picture sleeve. A new version of "Brothers & Sisters" later appeared on the "Trouble" single. The single was re-released as an EP in late 2002 on Brash Records.
