I usually avoid plugging my friends’ shit. I’ve tried, time and time and time again, to stay away from nepotism; it’s the little fucking gnat that annoys the shit out of me whenever I peruse other blogs. “OMG MY BEST FRIEND’S COUSIN’S FOURTEEN-YEAR-OLD STEPBROTHER IS AMAZING AT RAP!! CHEKK HIM OUTT!!!” Fuck, no. But, in the case of Chicago outfit The Break, I’ll break (no goddamn pun intended, and don’t doubt my lack of purposeful punnyness) my personal rules and rep the shit out of them. “Here Tonight,” a track that debuted at the legendary Lincoln Hall as they opened for Britpop sensation Viva Brother last week, is the group’s strongest cut yet–and (just in case their youthful appearance didn’t already give it away) they’re just seniors. In high school. The record is a gorgeous, ethereal indie ballad that sounds like Because of the Times-era Kings of Leon meets an even more downtrodden (if that’s even possible) Bloc Party. Check “Here Tonight” out, like ‘em on Facebook, and, if you’re ever in Chitown, give these guys a shout.
