‘Warnings’ is I Break Horses’ long awaited third album, their first since 2014’s, ‘Chiaroscuro’. The release is an intimate and sublimely expansive return that, as its recording suggests, sets its own pace with the intuitive power of a much-loved movie. And, as the title suggests, the sumptuous sound worlds – dreamy mellotrons, haunting loops, analogue synths – and layered lyrics crackle with immersive dramatic tensions on many levels. ‘It’s not a political album’, says band member, Maria Linden, ‘though it relates to the alarmist times we live in. Each song is a subtle warning of something not being quite right’.
