Brix & The Extricated return with Breaking State, on which they have pushed the sonic boundaries set by their debut, Part 2 (2017). While retaining much of what was loved about Part 2, this record demonstrates musical muscle and rapid growth of artistic intent. While the sonic thread of their time in The Fall is still clearly evident, there are many surprises and unexpected corners throughout Breaking State. This album is packed with seriously infectious choruses and killer guitar work. Each of the ten songs is rifled with the gut-wrenching power chords, driving riffs and technical dexterity of Jason Brown's guitar contrasted against the delicate beauty of Steve Trafford's moody, atmospheric, transportative soundscapes. Transparent purple vinyl.
