Listen to BRUX's stomping new EP, 'BADBOI'

BRUX has unveiled her latest EP, 'BADBOI'.

It follows two pummelling singles, 'BADBOI' and 'FOLLY OF THE BEAST' - which can both found on the EP - and includes a further single plus two remixes of the pre-released singles.

The EP is a heavily-loaded techno offering, intended for dark dancefloors and underground clubs.

“This EP encapsulates an unbridled force of energy that started to foster in 2020," explains BRUX. "It marks a time in my creative output where I couldn't unleash this energy in a physical space with an audience and so came about these lively songs that each have their own story."

"The two remixes are by artists I admire, and I am also currently collaborating with: Chambray & Taut. I've been a fan of Chambray for many years, since his 2016 'Reliev' LP. Taut is the alias of local New Yorker Jacob Bergson (now residing in Berlin), who I met through my collaborations with Kimbra. Jacob performs in her live show as synth player. I plan to move onto another club EP after this one, this release has stoked the fire in me.”

The new track making an appearance on the EP, 'VINEGAR HILL', is a gritty cut, written as an empowering track with experimental elements and echoing lyrics to emphasise the tune's energy.

Initially launching her BRUX project as an intentionally androgynous figure and wearing a mask to cover her face, April's EP 'Take' saw BRUX reveal her true identity after a conversation with Australian friend Nina Las Vegas, helping the artist to find the confidence to reveal herself.

She takes a complete DIY approach to all aspects of her artistic project, styling her own shoots, creating her own merchandise and directing her own artwork. BRUX has also recently delved into the web3 world, launching an NFT collection which enabled the self-funding for the 'BADBOI' EP.
