Sing-along choruses and big guitar riffs may be the first things that come to mind when thinking of Golden, CO's Broken Record, but on a second glance you'll find even more to love. Broken Record strives to offer the listener a connection, with tense moods and lyrics that reconcile with the realities of adult life.
Still, the band knows how to have a good time. Broken Record half-jokingly describe themselves as "power goth", a blend of emo, power pop, and post-punk. Starting as a songwriting experiment from singer/guitarist Lauren Beecher while living in Connecticut, it grew to a full-fledged project when she and bassist Corey Fruin made the big move out west in 2017.
After adding drummer Nick Danes, Broken Record released their debut self-titled EP in May of 2018, as well as follow-up EP By My Side in February of 2019. In April 2020, the band released their first LP, I Died Laughing, the first release with the addition of second guitarist Matt Dunne.
Notable Performances: Broken Record is slated to play The Fest 19 in Gainesville, FL this coming October! They've shared the stage with bands like The Smoking Popes, Nerf Herder, and Awakebutstillinbed, and headlined Ratio Beerworks' Halloween 2018 show.
