Break Reform Fractures
- Words: Jon Freer
- Label: Abstract Blue
This trio from London has combined the heart-stopping realism of Nana Vorperian's vocals, sparse hip-hop orientated beats, and a fondness for jazzed-out, keyed flavors to produce an honest portrait of modern urban life. The sincerity of Nana's vocals can be related to as easily as a friend's real-life woes. "Fractures" captures the anguish of a love lost perfectly, courtesy of sighing strings, a vibraphone that feigns happiness and captivating vocals. "Medusa Pts 1 & 2" sees frustrated beats, tear-shaped keys and a weaving flute combine alongside Nana's distraught vocals. Timeless jazz-hop nu-soul for people with a heart.
