I Break Horses debut album ‘Hearts’ has finally been released on Bella Union! *Dances a jig* I’ve been holding out for this one. So is it any good? Hell yes! The openers ‘Hearts‘ and ‘Winter Beats‘ are worth admission alone.

The third track ‘Wired’ is another interesting moment on the album. It kicks off with the familiar reverb heavy voice of Maria Linden, continues into a mad crescendo and then… it all goes to pizza. Seriously, this track melts! I’m thinking the engineer wasn’t drunk at the helm because it all ends well but it gives you an idea of what to expect from the Swedish duo. I Break Horses like to bend the rules.

‘Pulse’ on the other hand is I Break Horses being just a little more traditional. It’s a real builder that gallops along (I know its trite but listen to the drums and you’ll get me). The addition of Fredrik’s backing vocals is understated but works wonders.

Don’t sleep on this one. More I Break Horses info @ www.ibreakhorses.se / Bella Union.
