Le Guess Who? introduces part 7: I Break Horses

Allow us to introduce you to the world of I Break Horses, the nom de plume of Maria Lindén and her musical partner Fredrik Balck. Residing in the Swedish capital of Stockholm, the duo have quietly been crafting the nine tracks that make up debut album Hearts throughout stolen moments gathered up over the past three years.

The live incarnation of I Break Horses is one that is hugely anticipated amongst the many legions of fans the Stockholm duo have aquired these past few months. This video, filmed in a studio in their home town will only cement that excitment. Part one of three songs recorded, this rendition of ‘Winter Beats’ forces out the absolute romance of the original as Maria Linden coos that “frozen love will heal” over a delicate sea of synths and ghostly guitars. Perfection.

Curious for more? I Break Horses will be performing at Le Guess Who? 2011 on Friday November 25th. Passepartout and day tickets are available via
