Track Of The Day: Broken Records - 'See You On The Way Down'

Following on from their critically acclaimed second album 'Let Me Come Home', March 24th marks the return of Broken Records with the release of their new EP ‘Toska’ and a short run of UK live dates. The four track EP precedes their third full length LP, 'Weights And Pulleys', which is due for release in May. Produced by Tony Doogan (Mogwai, Delgados, Belle And Sebastian, Astrid) the ‘Toska’ EP is according to the press release "a visceral cathartic body of work that revisits the masterful orchestration of the first album while combining the intense, relentlessly aggressive and turbulent sound of the last. "

The second track 'See You On The Way Down' is where a dark, graceful waltz meets unhinged, emotively intense vocals, sometimes a little reminiscent of Nick Cave. Brushed drums, striking piano and defined hums of bass feature in a brilliant arrangement that matches the quality of the songwriting and grabs the ear like nothing else on the four track EP. Formed in 2007, Broken Records are an indie folk band from Edinburgh, Scotland.
