"Sounds Familiar" is a follow up to Breaks Co-Op’s 2004 album The Sound Inside which featured the single The Otherside. It became the most-played song of that year on NZ airwaves, a Top 5 UK radio hit and winner of the Song of the Year Tui award.
After the lengthy campaign that followed the international release of The Sound Inside through to 2007, Hamish Clark moved to Berlin and Andy Lovegrove settled with his young family the North of England.
Sticking to the Breaks Co-Op blueprint that blends mostly electronic beats with acoustic instruments and strings beneath Andy’s brilliant vocals, the classic melodic sensibility they share comes to the fore on a set of shamelessly big tunes.
It is a formula that's already served them well and if relying on these proven elements – a feel for real music with human qualities – then sounding familiar is no bad choice for these experienced musicmakers returning in top form.
