“Captured immediately by BRUCH’s cavernous, enveloping and cleansing vocals (gently reminiscent of Aurora), I’m absolutely enchanted by the palpable atmosphere that she creates. As the textures and sheer aural impact develop and brilliantly original percussive layers are introduced, the song builds to a stunning and truly inspired climax.” Will O'Brien - ISLAND RECORDS A&R
BRUCH’s music is like nothing else.
She takes influence from artists such as Massive Attack, Alice Phoebe Lou and David Bowie, along with a wide array of classical composers. A proud ‘owner’ of her Asperger’s Syndrome, BRUCH has been creating music since the age of thirteen. Her music is unique and diverse, spanning the genres of folk, pop and electronica, with a Nordic twist thrown in for good measure. But in quiet moments, she can be found listening to anything from Satie to Sondheim.
Her last three singles, Empty Land, Welcome, and CROWN. were snapped up by BBC Introducing for their Saturday night show, to great acclaim from both the host, Stephanie Nieuwenhuys, and the show’s audience, and she performed a two-song Live Lounge and interview for them in August.
One of the live tracks, Tortoise Skin, was from her recently released EP, Autis, which takes listeners on a multi-faceted journey through her autistic creativity. During the five-song EP, the audience journeys from ambient, hypnotic moments into bass-driven, thunderous tribal drumming, all accentuated by her multi-layered cello sections.
2019 will see BRUCH appearing on the BBC Introducing Stage at Winchestival, plus sets at Hastings Fat Tuesday and the Metropolis Blue Label showcase launch night, with many more to be announced…
“…An eagle-high voice that was experimental enough to sound as if it was jetting into silver-bird territory one moment, before getting cleverly husky & sophisticated ‘n’ clubby the next. This was gorgeous jazz-pop with acidic soft-centres.”Neil Mach | RAW RAMP
“Amazing! …Your commitment to the performance is captivating!”Kieron Pepper (The Prodigy [97-07], Radiophonic Workshop)
“… Unusual timbres and textures, ultimately an accompaniment to her striking and distinct voice which swoops, soars and drops to a whisper surrounded by ethereal harmonies and interplay while the music changes mood and tempo at the drop of a hat.”Neil March | Trust-The-Doc
