Brutus Begins - The Nothing Here

Brutus Begins - The Nothing Here

This review was originally published in May of 2018.

There's the flanged and woozy lead vocal on the verse, and then some Daft Punk falsetto for the chorus. It is a medicated sound that is darkly therapeutic. Brutus Begins, with their new single The Nothing Here, gives us a feeling of electrons marching, where everything is analog synthesizer, eighth notes, and tremolo-ed reverb.

It's a simple hook, with a few power chords on the dirty guitar. This is late-night party music, a bold spotlight on the common beauty of stylized lethargy and liquid depressants.

Brutus Begins is a project by psych-folk artist Ricardo Temporao, based in Hamilton, Canada.
