Mining the rich soundscape of mid-'90s guitar pop, the band draws inspiration from seminal acts like Failure, R.E.M., Soundgarden and early Radiohead, where brooding introspection gives way to anthemic choruses and infectious electric guitar hooks. At once original and strikingly familiar, The Breaking crafts songs with mass appeal that remain firmly rooted in the alt rock tradition of the Cascadian glory days.With frequent trips up and down the west coast, the band has shared the stage with acts like The Sherlocks, Avi Buffalo, Floater, Lemolo, Everest, Aaron Lee Tasjan and The Domestics. The Pacific Northwest has long been known as a stronghold of alternative rock, although Portland's relatively recent rise to cultural mecca has created something of a faddish scene that barely resembles its roots. Nonetheless, a band of ‘90s-raised Northwesterners from the Rose City still carry the torch that illuminated their upbringing. Their self-titled debut LP, The Breaking, is a testament to the depth of that artistic heritage. Frontman Adam Sweeney, lead guitarist Tim Karplus and bassist Rick Bouvette form the core of the band, whose vintage sound is best defined by album opener Gone Electric. From its wall of rhythm guitars that honor the band's more raucous influences to its undeniable pop chorus hook, the single represents a solid debut effort that is sure to remind listeners where alternative rock found its footing.
