Brunnera is the exciting debut record by Edinburgh artist Gordon Bruce - hand-picked for joint release by Matthew Herbert’s NX Records (an offshoot of his Accidental imprint), and Kit Records (London label and NTS Radio stalwarts.)
Brunnera unfolds over seven tracks of genre-defying dance music. Frenetic, kitchen sink percussion and granite sub bass will chatter bones on the dancefloor. But it’s the trail of mossy melodies - coiling and lingering like mythical glow worms - that hints to something more arcane.
Recommended if you like Beatrice Dillon, Rian Treanor, Aylu.
A Summer of activity will see Gordon appearing for performances at London’s Cafe OTO (June 3), and NTS Radio (June 4), before a launch party celebrates the record release at Iklectik (June 22).
Brunnera’s self-titled EP will be pressed to a limited run of 300 vinyl records, with a reversible, wraparound art print featuring paintings by Isobel Neviazsky. The release is a joint effort by NX Records and Kit Records.
“Gordon’s debut EP is a brand of hyper-skewed whimsical speedcore in which too many percussive elements jostle against some warbly flutes and knackered casios” - Cafe OTO
