It’s hard not to see the hype around BRUIT= as the next big thing in post-rock. While their 2018 EP Monolith provided a promising indication of their sonic ambition, it was their debut LP The Machine is Burning and Now Everyone Knows It Could Happen Again which really set off the trigger. Receiving rave reviews around the globe and selling out the first vinyl pressing of 3,000 copies within less than a year, BRUIT= have no need to prove themselves beyond what they have already achieved so far. Consisting of three musical meditations, Apologie du Temps Perdu [Eng. apology for time wasted] sees BRUIT= cut down on their massive sound in favor of a more subtle contemplation. In contrast with their recent streaming single «Parasite (The Boycott Manifesto)» with its direct message for Spotify CEO Daniel Ek and his listeners, the band have seemingly forgone their activist agenda paring back the grand thematic gestures and poignant spoken-word excerpts. Instead, BRUIT= let the music do the talking, reaching an activism which is more visceral, but all the more personal. “This ambient EP is conceived as a comma between our first album and the next one,” explains bass player & violinist Cle’ment Libes about the purpose of this record. “It is an invitation to lose time, a parenthesis in the frantic race of our society.” Existing somewhere between the grand genius of soundtrack composers like Hans Zimmer and Ramin Djawadi, and the experimental prowess of fringe pop artists like Radiohead and Darkside, Apologie du Temps Perdu reveals the hidden power of film scores. We all know that moment in which we cease to be conscious of the musical accompaniment and we become truly absorbed in the story. The music becomes part of scenery, and at this moment we lose track of time. Talking of his own work Ramin Djawadi (Game of Thrones, Westworld) notes: “If you were to turn the picture off, there is a story there and a connection to the characters and the plots.” In the same way, through the sweeping strings of «La Sagesse de Nos Ai”eux», the ethereal tape loops of «Re^veur Lucide» and the undulating synths of «Les Temps Perdus», worlds are created to get lost in, and we experience the full power of music with our eyes and ears open.RIYL Hans Zimmer, Nils Frahm, Godspeed You!Black Emperor, Balmorhea, Max Richter, Olafur Arnalds, A Silver Mount Zion, Boards Of Canada Talking of his own work Ramin Djawadi (Game of Thrones, Westworld) notes: “If you were to turn the picture off, there is a story there and a connection to the characters and the plots.” In the same way, through the sweeping strings of «La Sagesse de Nos Ai”eux», the ethereal tape loops of «Re^veur Lucide» and the undulating synths of «Les Temps Perdus», worlds are created to get lost in, and we experience the full power of music with our eyes and ears open.RIYL Hans Zimmer, Nils Frahm, Godspeed You!Black Emperor, Balmorhea, Max Richter, Olafur Arnalds, A Silver Mount Zion, Boards Of Canada Talking of his own work Ramin Djawadi (Game of Thrones, Westworld) notes: “If you were to turn the picture off, there is a story there and a connection to the characters and the plots.” In the same way, through the sweeping strings of «La Sagesse de Nos Ai”eux», the ethereal tape loops of «Re^veur Lucide» and the undulating synths of «Les Temps Perdus», worlds are created to get lost in, and we experience the full power of music with our eyes and ears open.RIYL Hans Zimmer, Nils Frahm, Godspeed You!Black Emperor, Balmorhea, Max Richter, Olafur Arnalds, A Silver Mount Zion, Boards Of Canada
