BreakTime's "Love And Harmony": A Timeless Tune with Seamless Harmonies

The New Jersey band BreakTime, formed in 2018, has undergone significant evolution since their early days as a cover band. Their journey began to gain momentum with the release of their 2021 single, "Rock N' Roll Refugee," marking the start of their continuous growth and sonic development. Comprising members Sean (bass), Thommy (lead guitar), Doug (rhythm guitar), and Peter (drums), BreakTime draws inspiration from the timeless sounds of iconic acts like The Beatles and the Beach Boys. This quartet collaboratively crafts music that pays homage to the bygone era and audio landscapes of their musical heroes.

"Love And Harmony" exudes an innocent charm as the lyrics invite us to "sing songs of love and harmony." The lyrics transport listeners to a sun-soaked beach atmosphere, with references to sunshine and ocean vibes. The lead vocalist sets the scene: "A new day dawns above us darling/The sunrise glowed, as time it froze/The ocean bed arose with life/As creatures loomed around." These vivid descriptions create a sense of warmth and nostalgia.
