Much like the Greek mythology of Halcyon Days, Broken Back’s “Halcyon Birds” is a tale of love and commitment. The sea charming guitar and tropical rhythm compliment and even invoke the thought of witnessing the sea dwelling Kingfishers found in the ancient story. While listening, I can practically see them gracefully gliding on the winds, diving in for a salty snack or resting their wings on their cliff-side nests. Such a pleasant and infectious track.
Broken Back’s EP, Dear Misfortune, Mother of Joy is expected to release March 23 and you can pre-order it from iTunes.
