I Break Horses is the musical project led Maria Linden and they have released the excellent Chiaroscuro, the follow up to 2011’s superb debut Hearts, on the Bella Union label.
The album begins with the eerily wistful You Burn and slow and lingering track that swoons wonderfully to get things off to a fantastic start. Next up is Faith and absolutely stunning dance anthem that provides one of the highlights of the record. Denial takes you on an epic synth pop journey as well as having an uplifting and nostalgic resonance throughout.
The atmospheric soundscapes of Medicine Brush complement the superb grove to the sublime Disclosure perfectly. A purely amazing album is drawn to a conclusion by the wonderful ballad Heart To Know, which ensures that I Break Horses close proceedings in a fitting manner.
