Bio

Broken Mountain pose a beautiful dilemma - how do you describe a musical collective that defies genre? That is equal parts experimental and approachable? That is both complex and raw?

Listening to Broken Mountain is a trip through a dystopian paradise that combines the impressive and diverse musical talents of Andrew Bruce (vocalist/keyboard), Brendan Clark (bass), and Nicholas Meredith (drums).

Having first met at music school, Andrew, Brendan and Nicholas bonded over a mutual passion for music. With such distinct individual sounds, each member went on to explore their individual talents locally and abroad, before uniting in Sydney in 2015 to form Broken Mountain. Born out of this eclectic musical juggernaut is a unique sound and experience that is reminiscent of The Knife, James Blake, Bjork and Dirty Projectors.

Inspired by experimental production, ambient music, and raw textures, the Broken Mountain experience is one for all the senses and will stay with you long after the music fades.

With their debut release 'Earthquake', this Sydney three piece provides a taste of the dystopic light they're shedding on the musical world. The song is about apathy, expectation and the feeling of wanting something big to change outside of yourself. Produced by Nicholas Meredith and Broken Mountain. Mixed By Dan Rejmer, Recorded by Broken Mountain, Tom Garnett and George Sheridan.

A rewarding big finish to this track. Reminds me of the feeling I had upon hearing Tom Snowden's old band Lowlakes and that same dramatic darkness can be found here.

There's definitely some James Blake to this and I'm keen to hear you keep pushing the limits and add some sharp edges to your tracks.
