BRUX - Belong
15 Feb 2019
Enchanting vocals and uplifting chords rise above deep house undertones on BRUX’s soul-captivating single “Belong.”
Emerging in 2018 with a pair of knock-out releases (“Paper Boy” and “I’m Back”), BRUX bewitched fans across the globe with mysterious dance music inspired by the supernatural. Experimenting with hyper-processed vocal samples, analogue synths and advanced production techniques, BRUX created a unique sonic palate. Off the strength of these early singles and with triple j Unearthed naming “I’m Back” one of the “5 Best Independent Australian Songs of the Week”, BRUX was hand-selected as the sole musician to represent Australia at Red Bull Music Academy's 20th anniversary in Berlin. Following RBMA, BRUX crossed the Atlantic for a debut stateside performance in Los Angeles.
The artist behind BRUX has previous songwriting credits on records by Madeaux, Flight Facilities and The Aston Shuffle. Breaking down previously perceived notions, BRUX worked from the ground-up to build a new sound, with all of the songwriting, production and vocals done in-house. Since launching just last year, BRUX has received press support from the likes of Mixmag, Complex, Purple Sneakers and PopMatters. This February and March, the producer supports the release of the new single with the Belong Tour, promising to bring her unique vibe across Australia.
“Her penchant for walking her own path instead of steering away from traditional songwriting formats goes hand-in-hand with the production, which sets her even further apart from anyone else in her field” - COMPLEX UK
