Album Notes
"another intelligent, subtle, harmony-filled pop record that goes against the grain but somehow sounds right for 2005". Record Of The Day

'Conscience' is Breakmakers new single, a song about intense self doubt, recorded entirely in the basement of their family house in Welly Road, Birkenhead.

Breakmakers is a five piece band (and somewhat a family affair), but Joe McDonnell is the centre piece and tune craftsman; a natural singer, his intimate lyrics take the band to a mesmerizing level live. He says he sings things that he would usually find difficult to say. He had a book of songs penned by the age of sixteen. Joe has a lot to say.

Breakmakers made their mark in 2004 when they released this, their debut EP 'Things We Say We Do'. It was described by Sunday Times as "wonderful". Music Week hailed them as the 'new Fleetwood Mac', delivering "Huge songs with a quirky edge"

The USA is now discovering Breakmakers through radio play on Sirius and the increasingly influential Passport Approved show on Indie 103.1 in LA.

Someone be smart and sign these guys to a deal!
A gorgeous single ("Conscience") and two spectacular B-sides (future album tracks?) from a bizarrely unsigned (as yet) band that is equal parts 70s acoustic rock (America, Seals & Crofts) and modern-day Brit pop (Coldplay, Keane). Tuneful, well-produced (no demo hiss here!), a must-have.
