‘NASA’ is the second single from London based electro, disco-punk, indietronic trio Broken Bricks, which comprises of producers Warren Borg (aka Worgie), Lee Hughes (aka Yewzi) along with vocalist Christianne. This single is the band’s follow up to the popular debut single release ‘Slow Down’.
‘NASA’ is an atypical love song; the story of yet another break up, it could be depressing or mournful but instead features a driving tempo and a big, dirty bassline to make you jump up and down, all mixed up with a lush singalong chorus.
Broken Bricks grew from the ashes of Worgie & Hughes’ punk band, Bricks, after their bassist left; at this point they began to record more electronic music, but something was missing… realising that they needed a female vocalist, they began working with Christianne, whose background was RnB and hiphop, and their sound evolved from there.
This melding of musical styles and genres is the core of Broken Bricks’ sound. Their eclectic influences include Maribou State, Thom Yorke, The XX, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Amy Winehouse, dark garage and grime music, Massive Attack, Bob Dylan, Etta James and Lauren Hill. The rest of the album, A Perfect View To Run, which will be out later this year, blends more punk and funk, with hints of late Prince in the style of the guitar riffs.
Broken Bricks also host a podcast, ‘Thru the Daw’, where they chat with music industry professionals about how they went about developing their passion into a career.
