Broken Back’s newest single, “Halcyon Birds,” takes listeners far away from the snowy weather with an infectious tropical vibe. The track fuses jangly guitar chords with a light, electro-pop beat to create an irresistible blend of tropical rhythms and subtle hints of folk music. Based on the singles that these guys have put together over the last 12 months, it’s safe to say that production is their strong suit. In fact, I challenge anyone to remix this track better than the original; frankly, I don’t think it can be done.
Broken Back is set to release their first EP, Dear Misfortune, Mother of Joy, in March of this year. If you’re looking to extend your tropical staycation just a little bit longer, take a listen to their cover of Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love,” as well.
