BRUX - B.W.P.
8 Nov 2019
Tilting her gaze towards social media superficiality, BRUX delivers a leftfield gem on ‘B.W.P.’ Meticulously merging house, techno and pop influences, the moody single offers a light dose of social commentary, rife with flamboyant energy and a heavy dose of celestial synths. ‘B.W.P.’ (standing for ‘bitches want pictures’) is the first single off BRUX’s forthcoming debut EP, scheduled for a 2020 release with etcetc Music and Dim Mak.
In BRUX’s own words, “This track for me is all about observing narcissism via social media. The involuntary addiction and competition of presenting our lives online to others, as false as that may be...!"
Fusing advanced production techniques with dark instrumentation and transcendental vocals, producer BRUX has emerged as one of the most intriguing Australian artists in recent years. After first entering the public eye in 2018 with a pair of tantalizing singles ‘I’m Back’ (triple j Unearthed ‘Best Independent Australian Songs of the Week’) and ‘Paper Boy’, BRUX continued to enchant audiences with her unique brand of dance music. February 2019’s single release ‘Belong’ continued BRUX’s impressive output, and the song has become her most well-received to date. Within a matter of months, the strength of her releases blazed a trail around the world, leading to her first headline tour across Australia and a slot 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 song writing credits on records by Madeaux, Flight Facilities and The Aston Shuffle. Breaking down previously perceived notions, BRUX worked from the groundup to build a new sound, with all of the song writing, 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.
Nearing the end of 2019, ‘B.W.P.’ is the perfect morsel to hold fans over until BRUX’s debut EP arrives in 2020. She is also set to perform live in March at Sydney’s Days Like This Festival, where she’ll join a stacked line-up which includes Richie Hawtin, Black Madonna, Maceo Plex, DJ Boring, Hunee and several other electronic tastemakers.
ABOUT BRUX Revel in the realm of BRUX - a turbulent force of brooding rhythms and distorted desires of the human psyche. Equally intimidating as alluring, BRUX confronts notions of fate, materialism and the pursuit of pleasure. A sonic feast that draws us deep into its wayward world of mystic energy and abrasive emotion, one cannot help but succumb to the sound and vision BRUX.
