Brute Heart takes on its music from an oblique angle, jamming together folk, world and pop elements into a stunning, unique sound. The trio’s two albums , including this year’s Lonely Hunter, feature spare arrangements fueled by percussion and violin, with a sound that’s like some kind of Middle-Eastern Velvet Underground . The band lists eastern folk music, heavy 1960s rock, David Byrne and Brian Eno among their influences, all turning on a goal to be “unique and accessible”. Their sound has made Brute Heart local favorites on The Current and Radio K and popular in live gigs at places like the Turf Club, the 7th St. Entry and the Hexagon.
