about

In early 2017, after several years of releasing music as a production only outfit, with appearances from various talented musicians, and with BBC 6Music and Radio 1 airplay under their belt, Pat Dooner and Carl Conway- Davis announced that they would be taking The Broken Orchestra live with the help of Emily Render (Vocals) and Tom Kay (Guitar). This resulted in a sold out debut show in August 2017.
The obvious next step was for The Broken Orchestra to follow this line up through to production and recordings. There lies the beginning of the brand new ‘Blinded EP’. This release is the first since welcoming new members Emily and Tom Kay to the fold.
The EP, Produced and mixed by The Broken Orchestra and mastered by Pete Maher (The 1975, U2, Paul Weller), features 5 brand new tracks which combine the trademark chopped, laid back, melodic trip-hop with ambient textures.

Track Name: Blinded
Observe the world,
and what will we find?
Computers, disasters, politicians; so blind

Where is the hope for out future kin,
the walls are thick around this box we're in

Chorus x2
Blinded by technology,
Rid of the mythology
spoon fed from a strangers hand

Breath cannot be drawn,
without a bitter taste
the manipulation we face, as the human race

Someone somewhere is somebody's daughter,
but this girl won't give up, come hell or high water

Chorus x4 to outro
Blinded by technology,
rid of the mythology,
spoon fed from a strangers hand
Track Name: Hands Untied
The sweet has turned sour, a bitter taste in our mouths
I may drown in contention, if I speak my mind out loud
Take a look through my eyes, looking in from the outside
I’m not bound by their enterprise
I live life with my hands untied

Our hands untied
Our hands untied
Our hands untied
Our hands untied

This ocean consumes them, full of deceit and our doubts
We may drown in contention
If we speak our minds out loud
Take a look through our eyes
Looking in from the outside
We’re not bound their enterprise
We live life with our hands untied

Our hands untied
Our hands untied
Our hands untied
Our hands untied

Looking in from the outside, we live life with our hands untied
Repeat to outro
Track Name: Hold Me Down
Hold me down
Don't let me lose control now
I'm hanging on to what I know

I've seen the beauty
And I've seen the darker side
Of what we all live and breathe

See me I want more
I just can't ignore the finer things
I live life through you
In love, laughter and truth
And we're all just passing through

Hold me down
Hold me down
Hold me down

Hold me down
Out on my own now
And I will reap what I sow

I'm realigned
Changing on the inside
Cutting all ties that bind

See me I want more
I just can't ignore the finer things
I live life through you
In love, laughter and truth
And we're all just passing through

Hold me down
Hold me down
Hold me down
Track Name: From Ashes
Chase the dream 
What’s left to believe
Endless roads 
Unpicked at the seam

Chorus (Hook)
But I will not hang my head too low 
Rose from ashes once before
I’ve come to far just to let this go

Labour of love
 But one that deceives
The time, the passion
Strength and belief 

Chorus (Hook)
 But I will not hang my head too low
 Rose from ashes once before
I’ve come to far just to let this go
