I Break Horses – Faith



With their much-anticipated second album due in early 2014, Maria Lindén and Fredrik Balck (aka I BREAK HORSES) have just unveiled an incredible video for new single ‘Faith’.

With its hypnotic beats and swirling synths, ‘Faith’ brilliantly signals the more electronically charged, dance-oriented direction of the band’s new material.

Directed by Magnus Härdner, the mesmerizing black and white accompanying video was shot in Stockholm.

Black and white is definitely cool.

The goosebump-inducing ‘Faith’ is in direct competition with our favourite track ‘Winter Beats’, taken from the band’s first album, ‘Hearts’ (which you can purchase on iTunes here). There is no denying that with their new work, they continue to break horses, and hearts.

I BREAK HORSES are supporting Sigur Rós on their European tour in November 2013 starting in Dublin on November 16 and finishing in Oslo on 28 November.
