Brodka goes on tour in the UK!
In autumn, she plays concerts in 5 cities:

October 1st, Liverpool, Hangar 34
October 2nd, Edinburgh, O2 Academy
October 7th, Bristol, St George
October 8th, Manchester, Manchester Academy
October 9th, London, Islington Assembly Hall

Warsaw-based singer-songwriter Brodka has already lived several different lives; child prodigy, TV talent show winner, multi-platinum artist, pop provocateur, and conceptual artist. Following a sold-out Speedy Wunderground 7”, the upcoming UK tour of Brodka will bring the audience songs from her last albums: Clashes, the newest polish EP – SADZA and her fifth studio album BRUT, which is a powerful examination of gender, self-image and society.

Recorded with Boxed In’s Oli Bayston (Kelly Lee Owens, Loyle Carner), BRUT finds Brodka blurring the boundaries between natural and synthetic sounds, with a dystopian air hanging over much of the record in part due to the shadow of the ongoing struggle in Poland for reproductive rights.
“Most of my life I’ve not matched the role that society wants me to play,” she says of challenging perceptions by creating a figure that incorporates traditional traits of both femininity and masculinity. “I’m seen as having lots of masculine features, but then I have quite a pretty, innocent face. I always had the feeling that my inner self doesn’t really match my outer self.”

In keeping with Brodka’s brutalism-inspired vision, there’s an industrial edge to BRUT, expressed in post-punk riffs, icy synths and the serrated, heavily-processed guitar sounds that slice through glittering electro-pop.
Whilst reclaiming her authentic identity in the face of the pressures of patriarchal society, Brodka has created the most compelling music of her career. And in doing so, she’s cemented her status as the European breakout artist to watch.

Brodka rusza w trasę po UK! Artystka jesienią zagra przekrojowy koncert w pięciu miastach UK:

1 października – Liverpool, Hangar 34
2 października – Edynburg, O2 Academy
7 października – Bristol, St George
8 października – Manchester – Manchester Academy
9 października – Londyn, Islington Assembly Hall

Przekrojowy repertuar koncertu obejmuje utwory z ostatnich płyt Brodki: „Clashes”, najnowszej – polskojęzycznej epki SADZA i studyjnego, piątego albumu Artystki – BRUT.
Podczas pracy w londyńskim Flesh and Bone Studios, pod okiem producenta Oli’ego Baystona, powstał bezkompromisowy materiał, napędzany klasyczną sekcją rytmiczną, w którym pobrzmiewają echa punk rocka, trip hopu czy grunge’u. Płyta „BRUT” przepełniona jest powidokami z przeszłości i tęsknotą do lat 90-tych, w odważnym i nowoczesnym wydaniu. W warstwie tekstowej płyta otwiera między innymi dyskusję na temat roli płci. Odważnie mierzy się ze stereotypami narzuconymi przez społeczeństwo, wyraża potrzebę wyjścia z utartych konwenansów, tworzy figurę łączącą elementy kobiecości i męskości.
