The man they called Brokof was a blazing star in one family’s dark history. A player with a wandering heart. The band called Brokof follows him into the vastness and gives it a face. They draft a map with songs. Singing with beautiful solemn sadness about encounters and fleeting moments of truth. Hinting at rage born from the loss that occurs when one moves in life. About what one has to gain when there is nothing expected. When hope has turned to echoes and dust.
These are pop songs purged and reduced to the core.Every sound stands alone to serve the song. There are no tricks. Through their naked vulnerability they find their power. The structure is stark and the messages clear.
The band Brokof formed in 2007. All the band members met a long time before that and, running a recording studio together, they occasionally played music just for the fun of it. Songs are a lot different though. When songs come you cant stay out of the world, cause thats where they belong. They first released Sorry Gilberto vs Brokof, a Split EP with three of their songs on it in June 2007. In July 2010 they released a/b, a 10 inch Vinyl. In october 2010 their first full length studio album Softly, softly, catchee monkey will be released on Goldrausch-Records.
