Bella Union are delighted to announce the signing of young up’n’coming Norwegian five-piece BROEN. The band have already been championed by the likes of The Guardian, Consequence of Sound, BBC Radio 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne, and now Bella Union’s Simon Raymonde, who welcomes them to his label. Combining elements of R’n’B, rap, jazz, improvisation, psychedelia, dub and electronica, Broen ignore the usual genre conventions to create their own unique sound. They have built up a reputation of being one of Norway’s finest live bands, presenting something completely out of the ordinary. Sparkle-laden costumes and signature dance moves are rivalled only by their own live prowess and musicianship. They cannot be described by drawing lines to similar acts, but simply by drawing a line towards them.
Currently working on their debut album, which will be released later in the year, Broen have shared a first taste of the LP in the form of the track “<3”. Listen below…
Broen have also announced details of two London live shows in late April as part of Music Norway’s Oya Nights. The second of the two shows, at Shoreditch House, is invite only, so feel free to hit us up! Dates/info below:
Tuesday 25th April – LONDON – Kamio
Wednesday 26th April – LONDON – Shoreditch House
More info coming soon. Broen photo below:
