Broken Back – A Band Review

     Continental Europe offers both Broken Back and Milky Chance. There are sufficient similarities to justify referring to them in a single blog post, but sufficient differences to convincingly argue that they are in different genres. The more established (but still rising) Milky Chance is more firmly rooted in Folktronica than is Broken Back, which is more Electro-Pop (“Poptronica?”).
     Broken Back is based in Paris, which is about 450 miles (724 km) from Milky Chance’s home in Kassel, Germany. Broken Back is the performance name of Jérôme Fagnet, a 23 year old singer and songwriter. With each new release, Broken Back seems to get better. He's charting in the right direction. The most recently released single is "Halcyon Birds."

     “Seven Words” by Broken Back

     “Flashed Junk Mind” by Milky Chance
