The Breaks

click to enlarge

Normally found hanging out at Dud’s farm in the depths of Ashdown Forest, The Breaks are a lightly-bearded, folk-tinged pop band from the darker side of Tunbridge Wells. Influenced by acts like Okkervil River, Bonnie Prince Billy, Iron & Wine and Husky, their sound is at times melancholic, occasionally menacing, and always melodic, rich and tuneful. The band includes singer-songwriter Stu Cardwell on vocals and guitars, Andy Shonfeld on bass, Al Smith on vocals, keys, guitar, mandolin and banjo, and Alex Cooper on drums and percussion.
