BROUS ANNOUNCES DATE OF RELEASE AND EAST COAST TOUR
…the lush production, undulating melody and hypnotic performance signaling the emergence of an exciting new artist in Australia.
Now, The Australian described ‘human powerhouse’, is set to reveal more. Following a fresh signing with One Louder Recordings, Brous has slated Friday 23rd September to release her self-titled debut EP. To celebrate, Brous will be taking her mesmerizing live show on the road, taking in three capital cities in early September.
Early last month Brous gave a taste of what’s to come, delivering the fluttering psych-pop anthem ‘Streamers’. It was picked up quickly by radio, with triple j adding it to rotation and featuring her on Unearthed. Triple R and FBi also gave the track their nod of approval, the latter crowning her their ‘Unsigned Artist of the Week’. The accompanying video clip for Streamers similarly caused a stir, with Rage naming it their ‘Indie Clip of the Week’.
"Streamers sounds like Nana Mouskouri and Barbarella striding into The Hacienda atop a white unicorn. Unexpected, slightly macabre and utterlytransfixing," Mikey Cahill, Herald Sun
"Melbourne has a new indie-pop diva and her name is Sophia Brous …delirious tempo shifts and left-field, lounge exotica touches" Mess + Noise
The Brous EP has a depth and richness of sound. The five stunningly penned songs cover vast musical terrain, all brought together by her powerful voice. Written by Brous and co-produced byherself, Scott Horscroft and Shags Chamberlain, the EP is a bold debut for the Melbourne artist.
Kicking off the tour in her hometown of Melbourne at The Buffalo Club on September 3rd, Brous will then be revisiting Sydney, taming and seducing the crowd at The Vanguard on Tuesday 6th September. She will then make her maiden voyage into Queensland to play at Brisbane music conference, BIGSOUND. Brous will be showcasing amongst the rest of Australia’s best on Wednesday 7th September at Woodland Bar.
Brous will be bringing her accomplished 5-piece band on the road for the tour, which will also feature supports from Daisy M Tulley (Bridezilla) and Magic Silver White. Tickets for Brous’ September Tour are on sale now.
Single ‘Streamers’ is out now digitally. Her self-titled EP will be out Friday 23rd September via One Louder Recordings/Universal.
