I Break Horses announce new LP set for May release, lead single Neon Lights out now


I Break Horses

With the announcement of a new studio LP from Stockholm duo I Break Horses, Getintothis’ Max Richardson brings the details.

I Break Horses’ latest single Neon Lights is a work of electro alt-pop at its absolute best, with lush vocals topping shimmering analog synths in an alternative ballad.

Neon Lights has arrived as the lead single of Stockholm based duo I Break Horses third album Warnings – set for a release on May 8.

Following on from 2014’s Chiaroscuro, Warnings is looking set to be of the highest quality, contemporary indie pop at its best.

I Break Horses are a suitably cool name on the scene, quickly rising and attracting prominent attention.

Having previously toured with M83 and Sigur Rós, I Break Horses can also boast support from U2, who entered the stage to one of their tracks in a recent tour.

Lead single Neon Lights is difficult to pin to a stylistic comparison, with elements of CHVRCHES and perhaps the subtlest of hints of Tame Impala merging to create a truly unique work of electro pop.

Warnings boasts a poignant message in these troubled times. Not particularly focused on politics, each track of the LP carries a message warning the listener against some issue in modern society.

The unique style of Maria Lindén is really given a chance to shine on Neon Lights, which is evidently a carefully crafted work from top to bottom.

The gorgeous synths of the track merge with the ethereal vocals to create something truly special – if this is a mark of the quality of the album to follow, then count us in.

Spanning twelve tracks, Warnings is set for a May 8 release via Bella Union.
