Brutus share new track ‘Love Won’t Hide The Ugliness’
Belgian trio Brutus’ critically-acclaimed album ‘Unison Life’ is having it’s one year release anniversary and to celebrate this news the band have shared their new single ‘Love Won’t Hide The Ugliness’ which was recorded during the ‘Unison Life’ sessions but didn’t make the final track-listing. However they have now decided it’s a song that needs to see the light of day as vocalist / drummer Stefanie comments, “We are very happy we can release this now, after such a crazy year on the road. “Love Won’t Hide The Ugliness” has always been one of my favourite songs when we were writing the album. The is about how love can cloud judgment and make it difficult to remain impartial. It can cause people to blindly follow others and lose their own sense of beauty. In the worst case, it can lead to self-destruction and damage relationships.” The song has that haunting ethereal sound Brutus have honed in on so well as sliding guitar lines and atmospheric instrumentals set the tone for Stephanie to deliver an emotionally charged vocal performance on top of.
The accompanying video for the song Brutus teamed up again with Maximiliaan Dierckx, who also directed and shot the ‘Liar’ video that officially started the ‘Unison Life’ campaign. In the ‘Love Won’t Hide The Ugliness’ video, they create a dreamworld that diverges from the direct and confrontational style of the Unison Life album. The video’s opening scene was shot in Belgium at the Vooruit venue in their hometown of Ghent, where they have already played numerous sold-out shows.

An intro needs to set the right atmosphere for the show. I wanted to create a dreamy, floaty, hopeful vibe to set our opening track of the first run of shows: Liar.”
