Fans of Lana Del Rey and Evanescence Alike Need to Check Out breakk.away

On “I’ll See You When the Night Comes” – the new track from up-and-coming Michigan based alternative rock collaborative breakk.away – the listener gets to experience a brand of alternative music fed by the world of hard rock and metal, as well as the singer-songwriter vibes the likes of songstress Lana Del Rey. With a powerful female lead and a cinematic backdrop that blends metal, pop, and indie styles, the overall feeling of the track is not too far off from bands like Evanescence or the vastly underrated Flyleaf. Yet, there’s something that feels rooted in the Brooklyn hipster music scene, as well. Clearly influenced by everything from the progressive rock of Maynard James Keenan (Tool, A Perfect Circle) to the female fronted alternative pop of Lorde and Amy Winehouse to 90s alternative like Garbage and beyond, there’s a sound that feels fresh but familiar all at once.

As breakk.away releases more tracks and pushes towards their first full release, you can follow them on Facebook, Spotify, and Twitter to see what’s cooking. If “I’ll See You When the Night Comes” is any indication, this is a new force to be reckoned with in the music scene and I wouldn’t be surprised to see breakk.away making big waves in the coming years.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
