The recent winners of the Sziget Festival France, Breaky Boxes reveal their debut EP «From the Shelter»

Breaky Boxes is an Indie folk band hailing from Rouen, France. Founded in 2014 and with more than 150 shows under their belt, the band will finally release their first EP « From the Shelter » on March 28th 2018. The latter is indeed available via various platforms such as : SpotifyBandcampYouTubeItunes and Deezer.

On the EP «From the Shelter», the band reveals:

«This EP draws its inspiration from American and Irish folk culture. We favored the use of typical instruments of the genre, such as the banjo, the harmonica and an acoustic guitar. All, by adding a touch of modernity with a keyboard and a synth, then in the melodies voice, pretty pop.

The whole EP was recorded by ourselves, in our studio, at home.

This EP is the result of a shift made by the band in the style of our music. We wanted to devote ourselves to a music that was more “optimistic” and aimed at making people live something. A music that touches and provides more feelings, joy, as melancholy.»

But that’s not all! The band has also won last month, the contest of one of the biggest festivals in Europe: the Sziget Festival. The Breaky Boxes were indeed able to qualify themselves brilliantly during the various stages of selection. Out of 500 applications, the band has not only won the hearts of Internet users, but also of a renowned jury composed of Virgin radio, Soonvibes, Point Ephemere and Sziget Festival.
