Known for her killer-byte, she likes a nybble of Daft Punk, PJ Harvey, and Daughter, a couple more bytes from FC Kahuna, Elastica, and Portishead, and maybe a few bits of Bat for Lashes and Trentemoller. The rest of BRUNO's bits are private.
Her current aim is to 'Kill All the Trolls' on the Internet
(take a listen to her debut single to get the full story
on that one). A video clip is currently in the making, as well.
If you're a troll, buckle up. If you're not a troll,

In one of BRUNO's parallel lives, she is also the singer
of the downtempo / chillwave group, Keep Shelly in Athens,
from Athens, Greece, where she goes by her birth name,
Jessica Bell. As 'Jessica Bell', BRUNO is also a rockstar
in the book world, having won awards for her novels, poetry,
and even book cover design. Her latest release is a memoir called
'Dear Reflection' about her unusual upbringing in 1980s Melbourne,
Australia, with her parents, Erika Bach and Demetri Vlass,
who founded Ape the Cry and Hard Candy, two of Melbourne's iconic
With enough musical energy to make Jessica Bell combust,
she has chosen to redirect it into BRUNO.
An alter ego that has been hiding inside her for years. Being a
child of rock stars, and growing up surrounded by amplifiers,
distorted guitars, and inebriated women wearing black fishnets
and army boots, she has rebelled by bringing some 'pop' into
her life. But of course, those distorted guitars are still going
to creep into some of her songs. She can't help it.
It's in her blood.
