BRONZE (vs, not not fun) gratis!


"Bronze is Brian D. Hock, Rob Spector and Miles Friction. After a european tour opening for Erase Errata and grip of singles they recorded their first album "Copper" released on New York's "RVNG Intl" in 2011. Numerous U.S. and European tours followed and in 2014 they released their 2nd full length "World Arena" on Los Angeles label "Not Not Fun" The sound of "Bronze" is influenced by psychedelic synth musik, punk, wave, industrial and jazz, blended into a heavy cocktail of sonic witchery."

"The West Coast’s weirdest hidden treasure trio, Bronze, have been plying their molten composite of serpentine metro-gnomic drumming, oscillator raga, hash oil free verse, and pendulum bass patterns for seven shaded years, but sonic documentation remains sparse. The new decade, thankfully, has seen them reversing this deficit, first with 2011’s Copper LP, and now with World Arena, which unfolds another octagon’s worth of their signature spellbound smoke-ringed psych-fusion explorations. Tracked at their Trojan Cavern studio/bunker in San Francisco and mastered in Amsterdam by Ruud Lekx, the record freewheels from tranced polyrhythmic sequencer meditations (“Played,” “Quality”) to burnt chrome post-punk electronic experiments (“Almost”) to jazzy, decadent mystery rituals (“Dulcinea,” “Golden Handcuffs”). The way they weld home-wired circuitry modulation with lofty poetics and intuitive live band dynamics feels finessed, and fully-formed – and unusually liberated in today’s world-gone-solo landscape. Live, they’re even more baffling, seesawing from fluid fog-machine narratives to mesmerizing electro-modal jams, owning all zones. Future intercontinental tours should further bolster their standing in metallic arts communities. The Bronze Age is dawning." - Not Not Fun
