French post-rock outfit Bruit are very pleased to be able to confirm the details of their first full length album, due for release this coming April. Titled The machine is burning and now everyone knows it could happen again, the album will be released digitally on the 2nd of April 2021. A physical vinyl release will follow later in the Spring through the Elusive Sound record label, who also put out BRUIT’s debut EP Monolith back in 2018.
Combining elements of traditional post-rock with more classical and electronic ambient sounds, Bruit have a style that are likely to appeal to a wide range of fans of instrumental music of all kinds. The first single from The machine is burning and now everyone knows it could happen again, Renaissance, is out now, and can be enjoyed below:
”The piece evokes a humanity reborn from its ashes and rebuilding itself from nature. On this track Mehdi Thiriot has created a video clip, woven with symbols that illustrate the everlasting conflict between nature and culture.’The band on their new single Renaissance
Bruit have also offered some insights and a commentary on their upcoming album:
We don’t consider this album to be a compilation of separate tracks but more like a poetic interlude where every moment introduces the next. The listener will only sporadically be guided towards a theme or a voice and will instead find meaning by surrendering to the intangible atmospheres that allow the listener to create their own narratives.
We prefer long formats because we consider that our modern society disconnects us from our biological and natural rhythm. We think that music should be a medium of reappropriation of our given time.
We have decided not to diffuse our music on corporate streaming platforms, because we believe they contradict the philosophical and political ideals we defend
