BRNS

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, 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.

My Tv Is Dead

"...There are 15 tracks on this CD and at least six of them would make excellent singles.
They have the nerve to sound like bloody Pink Floyd at times and ape The Beatles blatantly too.
... these guys are big on melody. Indeed they are, but there’s also excellent (English) lyrics, a drummer (or drum-machine, sometimes) thumping out everything from heavy rock to techno beats, harmonies to make you wee-wee your trousers..."

Girls In Hawaii

Girls in Hawaii is a belgian indie pop band. Antoine and Lionel started to record their songs on their Dream Machine (an old 8 track-recorder). «We were friends an a bit bored. We had time and wanted to use it. I wrote a song, says Lionel, singer, composer and guitarist, and made it listen to Antoine (singer). I challenged him. Then he wrote another song back, and so on, we had several tracks. It started like that. We discovered that together, our songs had a coherence between them (...

True Colors

There are at least two bands with the name True Colors: 1. Summer 2004: former JUSTICE-guitarplayer Dunk had been without a band for a while when things started to itch, so he started a Straight Edge band that would sound like YOUTH OF TODAY’s ‘Break down the Walls’ and the TURNING POINT demo, with maybe a small hint of IN MY EYES… Dunk remembered Packo from his days of fronting BUILDING and figured the guy had everything this newfound band needed: a strong Edge, band-experience, outspokenness and most important of all: too much energy! Packo was down right away...

The Black Box Revelation

Who the hell said rock’n roll was dead? No, no, my friends, rock is very much alive and hard kickin’ in Dilbeek / Belgium.
