feb 2011: Broken cords ep
nov 2011 : Broken cords - TULOSAI?



The slowly growth of the desire of expression has encouraged the Broken Cords to work since 2009 on an innovative project: to create an unpublished repertory of songs and present it to several national contests, in the attempt to receive opinions, reviews and satisfactions.
The won contests are: the critical award at “Diva Festival” (Naples); the first award at “Krimisa’s got talent” (Cirò Marina); the important and victorious “Muddy Contest” (Chiavari); the win at “RockAgainstContest” (Barletta); the first awars at the contest “Teatro e Musica” , important because the band together with Nicolò Giangaspero (author of several lyrics) works on a project based on the fusion of dancing, cinema, acting and music (Terlizzi)
The visibility obtained by the contests and the will to invest on this project carries the group to surpass their own borders, believing in the possibility of being an emerging band. The self promotion, during a year full of shows and satisfactions, gives the band the possibility to record two singles and an official video, produced by “Friends of Music”, an independent label from Chiavari (Genova).
The production of the first single, “Febbraio”, means a change in the direction of the band because it gets popularity: 16.500 views of the video, directed by Alessio Rupalti; 1600 in the day of the publication on the web of the video. The Youtube channel of the band obtains the sixth position in the charts of Youtube Italy, winning against the visibility of Sanremo’s Festival competition.
After several months of intense live performances, the band records (in the studios of Friends of Music and ZeroDieciStudio of Roberto Virgo) the first official album, named “TU LO SAI?” and produces the videos of the first two singles: “Noi e Me” and “34 km a nord”.

As the first single "Noi e me" gained about 20000 plays on Youtube in 3 months and the second single "34 km a nord" keep position in the best 30 charts of indipendent song in Italy for 3 months and the video's going to be released on national TV channel Italia2 in the program Linea2.

“TU LO SAI?” is the emblematic title chosen to convey the meaning of this first work: it don’t pretend to give answers or create questions in the mind of the listener, but it only tries to evoke the research of lost sensations and inner emotions.
The sound of the album is direct and precise, raw and incisive. It is inspired by dark sonorities and it has an international sound. “TU LO SAI?” pays also attention on the texts. They can appear sophisticated in the form, but, at the same time, incisive in the meaning.
The video of the single “Noi e me” is, in the first week, one of the 50 videos more viewed in the music channel of Youtube Italy. While “34 km a nord” is twenty-seventh in the chart of the songs more broadcasted by Italian independent radio.
