Биография A Broken Silence

They recently signed a deal in Japan with RB Records and have acquired a massive Russian fanbase, toured their first single ‘The Road is Lost’ with The Whitlam’s - backed by an 88 piece orchestra no less - and played to a sold out audience’s including the Sydney Opera House where they received a standing ovation. A Broken Silence has arrived – and their debut album ‘All For What’ has just hit the shelves in Australia.
Eloquent, vivid and powerful lyrics from hip hop luminary Torcha set the tone of the group’s original and moving sound. Having cemented his reputation on the Australian Hip Hop scene as one half of the dynamic duo Hyjak N Torcha, Torcha has branched out with this new project, affording him a new sense of musical freedom.
Giving the lyrics form, with an orchestral vibrancy, are band members B-Don on keys, Cactus on guitar, Slim on Bass and Nathan on drums. Coming from different musical corners, the combined forces of the five members give life to powerful crescendos, soaring punk rock and metal guitar lines and a bottom end clearly inspired by the likes of Miles Davis and James Brown.
All tied together with boundary pushing production, A Broken Silence deliver a debut of world class standing.
Hearing the recordings in their infancy, prominent singer/songwriter - and The Whitlam’s front man - Tim Freedman was so impressed by the group of musicians from Sydney’s West that he wanted to be involved. As well as inviting the band to support The Whitlam’s on their latest national tour, Freedman also collaborated on the heartfelt first single off the album titled ‘The Road is Lost’.
Touching on many different topics and themes throughout, the album opener ‘Are You Not Entertained’ delves into the nature of the society we live in and the influence of celebrity in relation to violence, drugs and body image. Combining hard as rock guitar riffs, honest lyricism and melodic piano, ‘Are You Not Entertained’ is an apt indication of what the rest of the album has to offer. The social commentary continues with ‘Rat Race’ which looks at the pressures and expectations of modern living and ultimately the rewards of hard work.
Adding a little extra hip hop flavour to the record is The Herd’s Ozi Batla delivering an outpouring of appreciation for the country we call home. Keeping things positive, ‘This Nation’ pays credit where credit is due rather than focusing on the negatives and has a spirit and energy from start to finish.
The title track of the album is a powerful number about life in the fast lane. Telling real life stories growing up in the West, ‘All For What’ discusses the bad choices some people make - often with tragic outcomes, -question if it was all worth it in the end. While ‘By Your Laws’ talks over the issue of divorce and how kids can be pulled between two parents who both believe they are doing the best by their kids.
A Broken Silence is currently finishing off their Sophomore L.P which will be followed by a World Tour to support the new release. Stay tuned for details...
