Bromsen is a Berlin based duo techno songwriters and producers. They are flawless with their music production and continue to collaborate with their previous band- pamplemuse. They released their first single “Merryman” late last year and they’re incredible at bringing that old school aesthetics into their tracks.
Bromsen’s new single “The Photograph” is a game shaking track with its 80’s reverb meets techno rock vibe. This track is a collaboration with Claudio Manzari, Karlo Bromsen and Richard Bromsen. You can see that this trio has great chemistry as the song is so cohesive in nature. The song begins with an ear perking drum and techno beat combo that teases your senses. We then hear one of the Bromsen’s voice, almost like he’s singing through a telephone. He says “Nobody knows what happened to the tambourine man. No one took notice that he vanished in the sand”. Although the song has two verses and a recurring chorus, it does a great job at conveying the gravity of memories held within a photograph. The excellent guitar riffs in the song must be acknowledged.
“The Photograph” oozes of such sepia punk teenage energy. The song brings back images of Karyn Kusama’s early 2000’s cult classic Jennifer’s Body. This was one of the first few Gory films whose target audience were primarily women. The video of Bromsen’s track is a hodge podge of videos and photos that he has previously taken of his band. This makes the viewers feel like they are intrusively looking through someone’s phone, adding to the eeiriness of the track.
This duo has given the world a trippy new track that we can blare at parties and the world is not ready for this riot of a song. It’s no wonder that Bromsen has listeners across Germany, Netherlands and Belgium.
