Formed in 2001, the group are Adam and Jonathan Bohman (The Bohman Brothers) and Richard Thomas, who has a fascinating musical history including collaborations with the likes of Squarepusher, Stereolab and Add N to X.
Secluded Bronte's music is hard to describe since it is so heterogenous and by extension inclusive. This is why artists as diverse as the Art Ensemble of Chicago, Iggy Pop, Stephen Mulhern, Bjork, David Byrne, Felix Kubin, Robert Wyatt, Goodiepal, and Ilan Volkov regard them so highly.
Critically their music has been compared to the works of Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza, Harry Partch, Laurie Johnson, Jack Parnell, Bruno Nicolai, The Residents, Tristram S. Cary, Hans Weissgarten, and Weissgarten's contemporaries within the neo-immortalist school of composition such as Gordon Krumholz.
