Bawrut’s debut album ‘In The Middle’ has a fascinating premise and ideology behind it. Born in Gorizia, Italy, Bawrut has spent time reflecting on migration and movement around the Meditteranean and how that can change your identity. Just how fluid can your home and heritage be and what changes when somewhere or so many places could be called home? Bawrut wants to create music that falls between cultures – happy accidents if you were Bob Ross about it – where different musical ideas, times and places collide.
This happens under the premise of an electronica album that will cross over into what Bawrut terms ‘sunset pop’ – think Bibio, Caribou, Hiatus. The new single ‘Crossing for a Golden Blanket’ is equal parts a chill-out anthem that could be at home on the beach or in a yoga retreat on low. Then other cultures, guest vocalists and performers start to seep through into the fabric of the song. It took me two listens to connect with what was going on and now I’m a fan. I’m hoping the album will follow more of the same types of tricks to create a globaltronica of sorts.
Enjoy the video for Crossing for a Golden Blanket below. The single is out now and the debut album ‘In The Middle’ is due for release on the 12th of November. For more info, you can follow Bawrut on your platform of choice.
