The collaboration between BRNS and Ropoporose can only turn out to be surprising. BRNS is known for its original combination of experimental rock and infectious pop, both bizarre and catchy at the same time. Ropoporose is credited with an equally great live reputation and has a preference for exciting melodies and whimsical textures. On April 28 the two bands first play separately, to then reveal a shared project.
BRNS is the result of an extremely personal and original look on contemporary pop music. While the singing of Timothée Philippe is reminiscent of WU LYF, and the drums like to wander to the danceable regions of Foals («Mexico»), the band quickly decorates its music with dissonances, projections of noise and rhythmical subtleties. An experimental indie-rock mixed with the sensibilities of pop, floating between hallucinating choirs, spinning melodica's, sinister xylophones and dark organs.
PRESS: «Avec sa pop faite d’expérimentations, de boucles et de hachures, le quatuor bruxellois cultive depuis longtemps l’art de mélanger les cartes.» — Les Inrocks
«BRNS — uit te spreken als 'Brains' — toont zich als onze eigenste Animal Collective: Beach Boys-achtige zanglijnen, vreemde ritmes, en nauw in elkaar geweven geluidstapijten» — Focus Knack
FOR FANS OF: Animal Collective, Battles, Robbing Millions
Ropoporose is a family band, consisting of Pauline (vocals, guitar, keys, percussion) and her brother Romain (drums, guitar, backings). Their energetic post-rock combines efficient guitar riffs and psychedelic synths. Add the soft voice of Pauline, and you pretty much have an idea of how Ropoporose sounds. On their last album «Braziliers», the two present us their vision of krautrock and pop. Intoxicating the least.
