Private Reasons

by Bruno Pernadas

supported by
Tomi thumbnail
Tomi Came for "Theme Vision", stayed for "Step Out of the Light", and weeks later this record still has me hooked. I laughed, I cried, and I missed my ex. It's hard to conceive, but would you believe, that every track on this 75-minute record is awesome? Favorite track: Jory II.
whoose thumbnail
whoose Bruno Pernadas is a musical super-hero who uses their power to magic music that can really appeal to everyone - both for its sophistication and listenability. I always like to send people Jory I & II to introduce them to this artist. This album somehow combines the aesthetic of indie rock/ hipster music with styles and orchestration that feel very worldly. A great album for anyone who loves music! Favorite track: Jory II.
