As an official term, “Sheroine” does not exist. It’s an invention from Barcelona via Seville native, Brunetto, who, inspired by his love of comic books, decided that the heroines of his beloved stories needed an official name. It’s an ambiguous compound word, considering its association with the narcotic derived from morphine. None of this is an accident, as “Sheroine” also functions as the title to Brunetto’s triumphant return to the long-playing format, with music as suggestive and trance inducing as such a name deserves.
While recording and composing “Sheroine”, Brunetto took inspiration from the genres that have remained close to his heart along his years as a multifaceted artist, hence the constant presence of 90’s UK Hard Hop, break beats, ambient pop, IDM, avant-rock and the current wave of hip hop crossovers. He flows through all of these influences seamlessly, to create an album as diverse, danceable and thought-inducing that pays homage to the genres he loves, while bringing mew elements to the table.
Following his latest efforts -2005’s Déjalo Así Bru, 2006’s Homeself, and 2008’s B+- Brunetto stepped down from the stage to dedicate a couple of years to working as a press agent, collaborator and writer for various publications, agencies and record labels dedicated to promoting a wealth of great artists. Now, he’s back in the limelight himself with “Sheroine”, out on Irregular label, home to incredible artists like: The Suicide of Western Culture, Boreals, Lasers, The City’s Last Noise, Older and Fernando Lagreca.
