But finally, in 2014, the band decided to perform as a trio: Brianna, Daniel and Ryan from the musical Bordihn family. Since they started performing, the trio have released their new single ‘Don’t Close Your Eyes’ and ‘Broken Bones’ from the that earlier self-titled album.
Throughout each song, you will be brought into stories that every listener can associate with – love, loss, hardship, compassion and communication. Lead vocalist and songwriter, Ryan said about the new video for ‘Broken Bones’: “This song is about accepting a problem. Whether that problem is global, personal, or relational. It blurs the lines between relational dynamics and social issues. It’s about a longing for a peaceful way to resolve issues, and living our lives in a way that doesn’t tear others down.”
‘Broken Bones’ is actually the best song to introduce Bordeen. Somewhere between pop and idle, between danceable and rock, the song convinces me that Bordeen is the latest indie electro shock since Hello Goodbye and The Subways.
Brianna’s keyboard makes the band shiny and powerful. On ‘Don’t Close Your Eyes’, those make the song the track for rock dance freaks to listen to. If you ever feel like you are too old for One Direction, but Coldplay is a little too slow, you must listen to ‘Don’t Close Your Eyes’. The song has been playing on radio stations across Canada. Plus, Bordeen has been performing at most of the top clubs in Toronto, so you might have danced with this track already.
The song is not only easy listening; it actually has edgy sound with a cultural Latin influence, and cowbell and percussion solo. It is interesting.
All over, Bordeen is the album that you have somehow listened to somewhere, but the unexpected drum beat, the effective keyboard and the female vocals all managed to create a chemical reaction that produced a unique and exciting sound.
