Warnings is a new album by I Break Horses, Enjoy
Maria Lindén is a self-confessed control freak. The chief songwriter of Swedish duo I Break Horses, who’s joined by Fredrik Balck on drums, has here released her first album in six years. The record has, she’s said, endured a troubled gestation that involved “several studios, collaborations that didn’t work out, a crashed hard drive with about two years of work” and “writing new material again instead of trying to repair it”.
The fruits of Lindén’s labour may have been hard-won, but they’re all the sweeter for it. ‘Warnings’ is a rich record that borrows from the band’s early electrogaze sound (2011’s ‘Hearts’) and the crystal synth-pop of their second record (2014’s ‘Chiaroscuro’). Album three, though, cranks up the experiment and drama. The collection is marked by the tension and release of the titular warnings – which range from the narrator realising that a lover is emotionally unavailable (lullaby opener ‘Turn’) to a young person’s tragic decision to end their life (‘Death Engine’). This vividness makes even more sense when you learn Lindén wrote the songs while watching films on mute.
