Fruitions newest album, Broken at the Break of Day, shines a light on all five members of the band, whether its on the traded lead vocals of Dawn or the irresistible rhythms of Where Can I Turn. As its been for more than a decade, their sound is hard to define, but the songwriting and the harmonies tie their diverse influences together.For example, Counting the Days is a poignant love letter, while For You shows the exasperation of maintaining a relationship on the road. The bands most electrifying rock moment, Do What You Want, is then followed by Nothing More Than Spinning, which sounds like a folk song interpreted by Queen. The stunning vocal blend heard in At the End of the Day brings Broken at the Break of Day to its beautiful and touching conclusion.Although its a challenge to categorize, the seven-song album feels whole because of the bands dedication to honesty as well as harmony. The Portland, Oregon-based band is composed of Jay Cobb Anderson (electric guitar, vocals), Kellen Asebroek (piano, acoustic guitar vocals), Jeff Leonard (bass), Mimi Naja (mandolin, electric guitar, vocals) and Tyler Thompson (drums). Broken at the Break of Day, recorded in Thompsons basement in between tour dates, follows the bands exceptional 2019 album, Wild as the Night.This process was the quickest the band had ever wrote and recorded the songs, Thompson says. All the songs obviously fit either a day or night theme, but the whole rehearsing and recording process had to be done in about half the amount of time we were used to. That time limitation leant us to not over think things, play instinctually and all live in the studio with very minimal overdubs. All the songs are very different, but I think the speedy process naturally created some sonic congruency.The prolific band will release Wild as the Night and Broken at the Break of Day together on vinyl as well, giving listeners the option to hear the music as a collective body of work in a playlist-focused era.
