Next Step June Winner: The Broken Orchestra

 

Our June Next Step winners are quite marvelous, we must say. We actually featured their video for “Closer” with Anna Stott a while back, and totally fell in love with their laid back soulful groove.

The Broken Orchestra is centered around producers Pat Dooner and Carl Conway-Davis, who work in tandem with selected artists and musicians to cultivate their soothing sounds.

After two years in the making, the group just signed to Phonosaurus Records and will be releasing their debut album, Shibui, on October 23rd. The vocal appearances are going to be a real treat with contributions from Moby’s lead singer Inyang Bassey, Natalie Gardiner, Lauren Jade, and Lady Paradox.

Oh, and yeah – we got the exclusive premiere for the first official single from Shibui called “Take Back The Day,” which also happens to be the track featuring Inyang Bassey. Yeah, no big deal. It’s also a free download – holler at the widget below. Beautiful, beautiful music!

Folks can also look forward to tour dates in the pipeline, acoustic version videos, remixes, and instrumentals. Wee!
