Broken Boy have released their latest single, Just To Leave You, via Canvas Records. Blending the best elements of bands such as Franz Ferdinand and The Strokes, Broken Boy have produced a single that explodes into life before breaking down into a minimalist yet catchy verse showcasing Cam Black’s distinctive vocals and low rumbling bass, while brother Stewart Black provides a punchy attack on lead guitar.
Broken Boy began in 2013 when brothers Stewart and Cam began to write together after flirting with several separate musical projects. Initially, the ambition was to expand their sound into an Arcade Fire style six piece band, but they decided their sound was more suited to a stripped back three-piece indie vibe, and in 2015 the brothers joined forces with drummer Fraser Laing who was the final piece of the jigsaw.
With the band fresh out the studio with Chem 19’s Paul Savage (Twilight Sad, Teenage Fanclub) and having recently played shows with Catfish and The Bottlemen and Circa Waves, 2015 looks set to be a breakthrough year for the talented trio.
