BRANES is a self-described hyper-pop, maximal synth duo from Los Angeles, CA. Originally forming as a performance art based project in late 2010, BRANES have relentlessly toured with a live show that is aggressive and conceptual. Ivy’s love for early goth music and Susan Subtract's background in mutant punk (see Terraform, Manufakt, etc…) creates a sound that is inherently genuine and absurd. The name ‘BRANES’ stems from theories in cosmology and refers to massive, multi-dimensional, oscillating objects that construct reality. Aside from grappling with theoretical physics, there are many reoccurring themes in BRANES’ music referring to black holes, living in the void, social commentary on advances in technology, psychotic rampages, and child beauty pageants.
