BreakTime bring that joy to music that The Beatles used to bring. This is rare, especially at a time where it is easy to draw out the negatives. Love songs sung with a smile that look forward to what humanity truly lives for. Their music is that herbal tea that kick-starts your day. This is their single, Love and Harmony.
Like Petty or any of the genius songwriters in their heyday, BreakTime provide that jangling guitar sound that clings to the melody. It is as soothing as it is directing, especially to the sweet lyrics that are written. There are a billion or more love songs, but there’s something about the purity of expression that makes you want to listen to it more. The soft percussion accents the poetry even more, making for a wonderful and honeyed song. Harmonies are delicate and soft, they are embedded with each line as though to vocalise the sound of a generation. Their songs like Maybe No, Maybe Yes come to mind now, having a very different dynamic but the same efficient songwriting. BreakTime are the music group that all your phones should be tuned to!
I’d love to feature this in the 2000 movie, High Fidelity. About a record store owner who struggles for love, some transition scenes in the sequence could be great with this song. You can follow this band for more music like this, don’t forget to check out their single with the link above!
