A very happy Halloween to one and all from the amazing Brutai who have released their latest track ‘The Upside Down’ as a special Halloween gift to bridge the gap before their next album release!
On a scale of one to ten, this track is an Eleven. Brutai are back and they mean business with an eerily epic track inspired by the Netflix series Stranger Things. ‘Upside Down’ is the first song that the band have released since their debut album ‘Born’ in November 2016. You could say, the band have been ‘reborn’. ‘Upside Down’ serves as an interlude to album 2, which the band are currently writing and recording. Brutai’s second album, yet to be titled, is set for a mid 2019 release.
Lyrically, the track tells of recent turbulent times that the band have been through. As a rebuttal to these difficulties, the track encourages humanity to try and see the world through someone else’s eyes, before they make decisions that they might later on regret. Brutai’s story will further unfold with their next single release, details to be revealed in early 2019.
Felix Lawrie, vocals and guitars, says this about ‘Upside Down’
“Upside Down is semi-inspired by the series Stranger Things. It relates to people being in situations that they can’t see a way out of, and it’s about asking people for help. It’s about being in an ‘upside down’ universe and seeing the world through someone else’s eyes. Empathy is the core emotion we hope people take away from this. The soundscapes are somewhat eerie and we felt Halloween was the perfect time to launch this track as an interlude to our new material from album 2.”
