Ten years is a long time.
Ten years ago Britain had a Labour government, troops on the ground in Iraq and a chancellor who promised that the years of boom and bust were at an end.
A decade ago, Yeasayer's Anand Wilder paired up with Maxwell Kardon to kick off a new project. An ambitious, theatrical concept album, 'Break Line' has been some ten years in the making.
Owing its germination to a story crafted in 2004, the project really gathered steam in 2008. Anand Wilder and Maxwell Kardon pieced together their core band, working with the likes of Ira Wolf Tuton (Yeasayer) on bass and Christopher Powell (Man Man) on drums.
Adding to the material whenever they had a spare moment, Anand Wilder and Maxwell Kardon are now ready to showcase their project to the world.
A full musical, 'Break Line' will be given a full release on July 14th via Mute. Ahead of this, Clash can premiere 'I'm To Blame' - and it's a doozy. Arriving with a flamboyance worthy of Queen, 'I'm To Blame' matches an off kilter arrangement to some searing, soaring vocals.
