The magical nomad & noir experimental singer/songwriter BRUDINI is an incomparable voice on Soho’s bohemian arts scene… We thought his “Reflections” were “soothing & fungally expanding…” and compared his music-craft to Scott Walker.
Now he’s released a song that’s about stamping down aspects of your own identity, because if you make them public, you might be afraid of what will happen…
So, in a unique collaboration between Brudini and New York based fashion photographer Fabrizio del Rincon, the video for ‘Emotional Outlaw‘ [shared below] sees the musician crashing into an androgynous and highly ambiguous persona — played by queer model Didi Fredrika — who takes-on the role of soulmate, muse, demon and even, perhaps, a personification of the repressed aspects of the artist himself.
The number begins with increasingly dangerous drums before the intrepid & translucent voice declares its plea. Halfway, there is an unfriendly buzz and a shriek that seems to indicate some kind of turning point has been reached: as if from here there is no turning back. After that, low notes and reflexive keys shimmer & frolic with the listener’s own perspectives.
This is deliciously expressive and eloquently smeary, without being filthy…
Emotional Outlaw is the second single from the forthcoming debut album, From Darkness Light
