The BRKN released their debut EP No. 3 in early 2020 and headed out on what was supposed to be a lengthy tour run but after one date the world went into quarantine due to Covid-19 and the band headed home. While stuck at home and afforded the time to experiment, the three-piece stretched the boundaries of their signature style. Nodding to influences such as Prince, Michael Jackson, and The 1975, they seamlessly integrated synths into their sonic palette.
Now as shows resume the band is looking forward to getting back on the road and premiering a live video for “Be Cool” shot in June of 2021 at The Black Sheep, Colorado Springs, CO.
When asked about being able to play live again the band shared, “It’s such a euphoric feeling to be able to finally play shows again and on top of that have our fans be so into it and show out. This is just the beginning,” says frontman Jacob Cade. “Playing live shows again is pretty surreal. It’s been so much fun to play these new songs live and the energy in the room is just so positive. I’m here for it,” adds drummer Mike Bokenkamp and guitarist MJ Younkers says, “Playing live again is like that first breath of fresh air after holding your breath underwater for too long. The energy courses from the stage to the crowd and back to the stage. I can’t wait to share that environment again at each coming show!”
The Denver trio wraps energetic pop in warm synths, straddling punk, alternative, and indie rock all at once on their new EP, Come Outside available on all streaming platforms now. Stream it here: https://ingroov.es/come-outside
