Broken

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    "Much time and love has nurtured these intensely personal songs of devotion. Eighteen months of craft (and graft) is on pristine display here with Elsworthian flourishes aplenty.

    Occasional stylistic nods to Muse are taken and there's an assured subtlety at work here.

    Elsworth's fiercely principled approach pays off in colourful, harmonically imaginative ways. The guitar work bristles with a coiled muscularity. Leads snake in from unexpected angles to resolve these meticulously sculpted musical equations with elegance and (dare I say it?) balance.

    Lyrical meditations flirt with Existentialist themes and layered vocal performances are heartfelt and loaded with conviction throughout especially on the title track which read like a letter of reassurance to my childhood self."
