BRUX - Bound To You
30 Aug 2019
Taking you on a sonic journey with an ethereal melody, entrancing vocals and sharp, electro-infused production, ‘Bound To You’ is the latest release from the mystical BRUX. ‘Bound To You’ is laced with a powerful, yet relatable storyline about the struggles of surrendering to love, making this spellbinding single more than just a body of tech house pop.
BRUX explains, “Bound To You is a story of painful love - surrendering your whole self to someone but getting nothing back. The frustration of being so deep in it and unable to break away even when it’s toxic.”
‘Bound To You’ follows on from BRUX’s highly received release ‘Belong’ which gained the support of triple j, triple j Unearthed and Purple Sneakers, as well as the likes of heavyweight DJ tastemakers The Aston Shuffle, Tiesto, Steve Aoki and more.
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.
