Toronto indie rock ‘musical collective’ Broken Social Scene have released their first song in 7 years, titled Halfway Home.
Broken Social Scene have been a band since 1999, formed by Andrew Drew and Brendan Canning, having a flexible lineup of generally between 6 to 19 (!) members, most from other bands or solo artists from Toronto.
This track sees the usual BSS song suspects being present (solid, grounding basswork, the pileup of instruments throughout the song, Kevin Drew’s half-stoned sounding singing, female vocals weaving in and out) with the centrepiece being the massive, upbeat chorus. Halfway Home is the first track released off their currently untitled fifth album.
