#LOCKDOWN HOME MOVIE by Bruises – Bitter Sweet Symphony (the Verve cover)

Dear Shaded Viewers,


“From our home in Paris where we are quarantined, we decided to do a cover of this beautiful song whose lyrics resonate strongly at the present time.”

Already praised by Gucci, Paco Rabanne and Variety for whom they played live, Bruises break the codes of pop music by mixing new wave and psychedelic rock to trip-hop. The duo features Adah Dylan, an American-Austrian songwriter on vocals. Early on, she developed a taste for poetry and progressive thinking, inspired by her futurologist grandfather, who won the Alternative Nobel Prize. She met Max Sokolinski, a multi-instrumentalist producer and composer who lived between Paris and Los Angeles and collaborated with various artists ranging from Clara Luciani (with whom he formed the duo “Hologram”), to Mathieu Chédid, Christophe, Daniel Johnston, or his sister Soko, whom he has been accompanying on stage since her debut. Underneath their catchy melodies, their lyrics are infused with a bittersweet feeling evoking both the freedom and the disenchantment of a new generation that seamlessly mixes genres and references.

Bruises is Always on point…
