Broken Sea formed in Gracetown, situated in Australia’s South West. The four piece rock group popped up in the local music scene in 2014. In 2015 they bought out their Debut EP 'State of Confusion'
The following review of their debut EP was conducted by The Even Ground's J. Simpson
'Australia has been cranking out a ton of quality rock 'n roll in the last few years. State Of Confusion, from Gracetown's Broken Sea is another fine addition to the pantheon, with a unique blend of influences, ranging from stoner metal, like Kyuss, and '90s alt-rock.
Along with the edgier influences like Kyuss, Broken Sea remind me of some of the finest moments of early '90s alt-rock and grunge, at times bringing to mind Tool, with the hypnotical, minimalist bassline of "Feel It", also sounding like an update on Rage Against The Machine, with less propaganda, They also bring to mind the moody, murky production style of the first three Alice In Chains records, as well as the taut stop-start guitars of The Smashing Pumpkins.
The other noteworthy aspect of Broken Sea is the anthemic vocals of Nina Reissinger. I can't tell you what a relief it is to find a powerful female vocalist over a mighty rock band!
No rhetoric is required to enjoy State Of Confusion, however. Broken Sea are, quite simply, a bitchin' rock 'n roll band, with chops across the board. This was Broken Sea's first time in a real studio, recording and mastering at Poons' Head Studios, and they are coming out sparking! Definitely a talented bunch to keep an eye and ear on!
