Formed in 2006 around the talents of Arne Kolb, Ian Turnbull, David Fothergill, Jamie Sutherland, Rory Sutherland, Dave Smith, and Andrew Keeney, the emotionally charged Edinburgh, Scotland-based indie rock outfit Broken Records have drawn comparisons to everyone from the Arcade Fire to Jeff Buckley.
Employing a musical arsenal that includes guitars, bass, violin, cello, accordion, mandolin, piano, trumpet, glockenspiel, and drums, the soaring septet released its self-titled debut EP in 2007 to the delight of critics and fans worldwide. A series of singles followed, as well as notable shows with the Futureheads, Editors, Sons and Daughters, and the Twilight Sad, culminating in studio sessions for the band's first full-length album, Until the Earth Begins to Part, in 2009. The group's stadium-sized sophomore outing, Let Me Come Home, arrived in October of the following year. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
