In the vein of early Britpop bands such as Oasis and modern musical acts as The Killers, Best Not Broken is back with is overly infectious, catchy new single “What The Night Has Left.”
About the song the band comments:
With “What the Night Has Left”, we wanted to experiment a bit with sonic textures we hadn’t used before without losing our stylistic roots. Producer Brian Coombes of Rocking Horse Studios, a fantastic musician and keyboard player by trade, was the perfect guy to help us do that. Together we dove deeper into some different synth sounds and different ways to create rhythms outside of your average rock drum beat. Vocally, we used harmony layering and some different voice treatments to add dynamic to various sections of the tune. We’re really excited with what we ended up with.
Lyrically, with the use of some semi-obscure metaphor, the song tells a story of the struggle to keep a band going in the face of life’s pressures to pursue more traditional occupations. It sort of captures some of the vibes that were floating amongst the band at the time we put it together. We love the tune but we’re also glad to have through that period!
The song came together pretty quickly – probably over just a few months, and was recorded quickly as well. It was initially designed as a stand-alone single but will now end up on our forthcoming album “Flight of Fiction”. It actually sort of sets the sonic tone for a few of the other new tunes on this record.
Best Not Broken started in 2007 playing local shows in and around New Hampshire. They quickly became known for their infectious, danceable music and insightful and sometimes amusing lyrics. Their first CD Somewhere Goodbrought the band to the attention of fans outside New Hampshire and they soon began playing venues throughout New England, bringing their contagiously fun performances to a wider audience. Along the way, they landed a residency at a New Hampshire landmark where they would pack the house every six weeks. They continued to play out, honing their craft and gaining new fans with every show. Best Not Broken’s second CD Falling In was reviewed heavily and their song “Tell Me That You Want Me” found its way on SiriusXM The Pulse’s Train Tracks with Pat Monahan, of the band Train. Eventually, Best Not Broken was noticed by Live Nation who felt the band had the professionalism and musical chops to take the big stage, supporting such acts as Pat Benatar, Jefferson Starship, Vertical Horizon and the Gin Blossoms. The band has performed with other chart-topping acts such as Jason Derulo and Matt Nathanson as well.
Best Not Broken will be dropping their third CD, as of yet untitled, with the hit single “What the Night Has Left” later this summer. They are now on the road with a series of dates across the Northeast which include multiple shows with 90’s legends the Gin Blossoms in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine. Big things are in the works as Best Not Broken continues to provide great music and an exciting stage show – sure to please their loyal fans and entice new ones as well.
