I Break Horses gets remixed by The Field

I Break Horses gets remixed by The Field, releasing new Remix EP & touring North America in. I break Horses start their tour April 14th Philadelphia, PA


Today Sweden’s I Break Horses announces a new EP of Remixes from its second album, Chiaroscuro, due April 15, featuring remixes from The Field, Tim Gane of Stereolab, Clarence Clarity, East India Youth and Tom Furse. You can stream The Field’s remix of “Faith” above. The band launches its first ever headlining tour of North America next month — the band has previously toured here as the opening act for M83.  The band’s second album, Chiaroscuro, was released in January via Bella Union / PIAS.


I BREAK HORSES is the musical project led by Maria Lindén. From her Stockholm base, the Swedish artist delivered an extraordinary debut album in the shape of Hearts, released by Bella Union in August 2011. Forward two years, and the arrival of  follow-up, entitled Chiaroscuro, is upon us. The latest chapter in I Break Horses’  songbook. In the words of Lindén: “My only aim when starting to write this album was to ignore any possible second album expectations.” The result is a more confident and evolved sound with a more dramatic expression.

With Chiaroscuro,  New sonic terrain is explored by Lindén, where electronic beats and synth-pop soundscapes replace the more shoegaze based-sound of their debut. As a result, there is a marked immediacy and directness to the new songs. As Lindén states: “I found myself writing almost all the sketches on the piano this time.” The music was recorded, mixed and produced by Lindén, with first lp wordsmith Fredrik Balck providing lyrical ideas from the images he derived from the music. Finally, Lindén and Balck would finish the lyrics together.
