While supporting M83 in the US on tour, I Break Horse (Maria Lindén and musical partner Fredrik Balck) visited Room 205 for a synth heavy live session during a brutal heatwave. To combat the heat, they stripped down to their underwear before a single note warbled from their synths.

More About I Break Horses?
Residing in Stockholm, Sweden, I Break Horses quietly crafted their 2011 debut album Hearts via stolen moments gathered up over a span of three years. Although influenced by My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive and Jesus & Mary Chain, I Break Horses is far from a typical shoegaze band. Coupled with Lindén’s vocals, a gorgeous Scandinavian croon bathed in layers of oceanic reverb and tremelo, and God only knows how many synths, drum pads and ornately effected guitar chords, I Break Horses offers a unique sonic experience unlike anything else you’ll soon hear.
