Break represents the duo's struggles and triumphs from their recent shift to pursuing music full-time. They write in the liner notes, "Sometimes we try so hard to keep it together that we don't realize what we gain from having it all fall apart. Breaking allows the bad to escape so all of the good things can seep into the cracks." I recently had a year where I learned this the hard way (though there's no easy way to learn it.) At times euphoric like "You," with its unusual, brain-candy hook; at times triumphant like "Doreen," and despairing as in "Too Much", Break is the soundtrack to anyone's toughest year. But it can also help us remember the strength needed to get through it. Either way, Break is what you'll need for the upcoming year.
