hmv's Next Big Thing... #72 Brodka
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Polish sensation Brodka, she's been away for a while and comes back with a very different sound...
Who Is She?
Brodka is 29-year-old Monika Brodka, she's already huge in her native Poland, having found fame on the Polish version of The X-Factor and has released three multi-platinum selling pop albums, but now she's trying something entirely different. Her new album Clashes is not only her first LP in English, it's also the debut of a new sound that owes more to Bat For Lashes and Lykke Li than skyscarper sized pop of her earlier work.
Who Does She Sound Like?
Her sound is an eerie, ethereal one, guitars laced with echo, thundering percussion and gentle vocals perched on top. The best comparisons are Lykke Li's Wounded Rhythms, 1990's Fleetwood Mac and PJ Harvey at her most bombastic.
Why Should I Be Excited?
She writes big, compelling and wonderfully glacial pop songs, that's why.
Can I Hear Something?
Sure. Her new single 'Santa Muerte' is below for you and you can pre-order Clashes on the right-hand side of the page.
