In the midsts of fruitful strikes, pandemics, cancellations and false starts, the quartet Brique gets together to give shape to a multi-referential music, but not too much. Melodic lines in traditional Italian songs that smell like struggle put in poetry to the rhythmic and verbal beatings in English, French or German, hip hop phrasing, mixing incisive and very soaring tempos, and it feels good.
“It is hard to put down words before notes but it comes out of this quartet a beautiful structured paste like a house built by Buster Keaton with lots of possible springs and songs in four pieces.” Luc Ex.
