Brandt Brauer Frick

For Brandt Brauer Frick, the drums, strings, and pianos that have long been the bedrock of Western music serve as the common thread between the classical past and the techno present. While devoted to the rich tones and timbres of orchestral instrumentation, the German trio’s rousing tracks are rhythmically focused and rendered with the mechanical precision of four-to-the-floor club tracks. Brandt Brauer Frick majestically transcends audience expectations in their clockwork-esque attention to musical subtleties.
