Belgian trio BRUTUS, release “Django” today from their forthcoming Sargent House debut, Nest — out next Friday. The single debuted viaHeavy Consequence on Consequence of Soundwho’ve described it “dynamic…an anthemic track from beginning to end.” BRUTUS explain, “‘Django’ represents all the people we’ve hurt in a personal way, but who we never wanted to hurt for longer than just a few seconds. The story takes place in the Far West and is our version of a Western soundtrack, inspired by Italian composer Enio Morricone, Twin Peaks and Duane Eddy.”
BRUTUS‘s unique and genre-bending sound throws a net over post-rock, hardcore, metal and pop. On their forthcoming album, Nest, all their glorious highs and euphoric moments are present – highlighted in magnificent technicolor. Burrowed in amongst those triumphs are moments of reflection; the choices they have made in pursuit of their goals and the impact those choices have had on both themselves and those they have left behind in their nest. The arc of the album charts the friction between the band’s forward motion and their desire to maintain a connection to those back at home. It’s timeline of invincibility and doubt, of taking risks and letting go; a chronology of what they are and what they’ve done.
