Breakers

Breakers – comprised of members Alex Bayly, Jamie Archer, Scott Carter, and Ollie Townsend – are an indie rock outfit based in Hertfordshire. After achieving acclaim and success with the release of their debut EP Redrum in 2016 the band confidently return with the new single Get in Line, one of two singles to be recently recorded with prolific producer John Mitchell (Architects, Enter Shikari). It also arrives alongside its music video – a blitzing performance piece, directed by Simon Stolland of Aukes Media, which sees the group perform the song amid a torrent of flashing lights.

After achieving acclaim and success with the release of their debut EP Redrum in 2016 which was funded by a Kickstarter campaign in which fans were rewarded with an EP and tickets to a sell out show at the Sebright Arms. The Ep also garnered support from BBC introducing, It’s All Indie and Texa’s Blog Southbound I-35 for the two singles ‘Salty’ & ‘Redrum’.

Their next single, ‘Get In Line’ is a three and a half minute rock out with unified melodic guitar lines and a particularly passionate vocal take by Alex Bayly. Breakers’ sound is a style of its own, exhibiting a exquisite knack for employing hard rock riffs with a sense of groove and swagger. Playing countless shows throughout London and Hertfordshire, they have gained recognition for their blistering energy and tightly-knit performances.

Breakers tell us more on the background behind the single.. “The song is concerned with conformity in the modern day world coupled with some references to unemployment or lack of progression in our original satellite towns. A feeling I and friends have felt a lot of recently. This song and playing in band generally always becomes our cathartic vessel of expression.”

 2018 may be the big year for Breakers; the next few months will be the perfect time to see the band as they continue to develop their craft and perform gigs in Ware, Bishops, and at The Finsbury in London.

Get in Line is self-released on 17th November and will be available via Spotify, Apple Music and other streaming platforms.
