Biography

Stockholm, Sweden (2008 – present)

The male/female duo, I Break Horses, are the nom de plume of Maria Lindén and her musical partner Fredrik Balck. The pair named themselves after a Smog song.

Residing in Stockholm, Sweden, the duo quietly crafted the nine tracks that make up 2011’s debut album Hearts throughout stolen moments gathered up since their formation in 2008.

    @jmanzo2009 Haha firstly I don't even hear the similarities. Completely different BPM, different patterns, different drum samples. Secondly, how many years of human culture do we have behind us? There will be similarities between songs even if it wasn't intended, I bet you could find 100 more songs with similar drums, especially with your ear for music.

    The beginning of Faith is a straight up copy of Crystal Castles' Kerosene.

    "Hearts" was a masterpiece. "Chiarascuro" was a promise that did not deliver fully. It's just a tease and the single "Faith" must've been one of my biggest musical disappointments of the last few years.

    Hearts had potential. Chiaroscuro delivers on that promise. Every track is a revelation.

    Maria Lindén took some time to answer a few of our questions about life on the road, performance inspiration and trying to eat healthy while on tour. http://blog.eventseeker.com/2014/04/29/interview-break-horses/

    I loved seeing y'all last night in boston! I wish I could show you around! "Denial" is such a beautiful track that it makes me see you in such a beautiful light the way you move. I am glad you came to Boston. I would love to grab a drink with you guys next time instead of just finishing your beer!

    They're truly great. A very interesting futuristic, dark and unusual synthpop can be found on the new record. I feel like re-listening it more times just to discover more of all the atmosphere.

    Only just discovered and absolutely loving it. But am I the only one though who thinks that "You Burn" sounds like Lana Del Rey? (This is not a bad thing at all....)
