From the medieval and postmodern corners of Brussels come BRNS, a mesmerizing experiment in dusk, dance, and the fullness of sound. Like the dark-yet-vibrant images of Brussels artist Yardz or Carl Roosens, this quartet of talented multi-instrumentalists weaves together tunes that are mystical, moody and insatiably catchy. From the visceral and danceable ‘Mexico’, to the choir echoes turned pulsating anthem of ‘Here Dead He Lies’, BRNS is ceaseless in their ability to unfold haunting ambience into chest-pounding beats, and then back again. If you are a fan of anything from Animal Collective to Fugazi, allow BRNS access into your inner sanctum (and party playlist).
BRNS has proven in 200+ shows in less than 2 years that they are one of the most progressive and truly independant bands of this time. Playing across Europe with bands like Yeasayer, WHY?, Cloud Nothings and SUUNS and performing at major European festivals such as Dour, Rock En Seine or Appletree Garden, the band has always been keen to unleash the most sincere and exhilarating of energies to the crowd. NME cited them as one of the most exciting new bands of 2013 and their new full length “PATINE” set for a late summer 2014 release is nothing but a confirmation of their hard work and dedication to expanding pop music.
