La Broken English

La Broken English

BandAlternativeRock

Broken English sounds like an iconic British rock band who got stranded in southern California. They learned how to rock out with smooth melodies while keeping a grungy sound. The band disguised themselves as a few Asian/Mexican kids just to get girls.

Biography

In High school we would mix old cassette tapes and cds of our favorite bands such as the strokes, the shins, and the Smits. When we entered college we got sick of listening to dubstep. We wanted to make real music for our friends to listen too. We decided to keep our music pure, with just two guitars, bass, vocals, and drums. There is nothing better then being in a band with your best friends.

We get inspired to write songs when we are hanging out as friends. Whether we're riding our bikes though town, hiking tough Malibu, or just hanging out at the beach. Our songs are about having fun. We mainly write fast up beat indie surf rock music.

We don't look like a typical indie band. Our singer is half japaness/mexican, bass player is filipino/El Ealvadorian, and guitar player is mexican/white. We like to juggle drum sticks, trash on a tambourine, and have fun when we are on stage. although we play fast indie music, our guitar and drummer still think they are in a punk band - like rancid.

We mainly play house parties and underground shows. Just because we enjoy the authentic feel of music. We would sell copies of our CD. We had friends that would sneak us into recording studios so we can give away our music for free.

Broken English was made to make authentic indie rock music for our friends and fans to enjoy.

Lyrics

Carriage

Written By: Takeji

X years and one half more
In our way and out that door
Here's our chance let's take Eileen
Go on out and ride to the scene

Oooh (ey ey)
Oooh (ey ey)

Say goodbye to all those curls
Don't look back admire the murals
Mountain cliffs of the coast
Don't say much were not ones to boast

Oooh (ey ey)
Oooh (ey ey)

Carriage don't let us stay

Take me away
Shadows of the city
Fading into nothing

Show me the way
Silent seas are crying
Melting into everything

What's the norm, experience?
Don't fall off there's no safety net
Now where should we go? (where should we go)
Where should we go? (where should we go)

Carriage don't let us stay

Take me away
Shadows of the city
Fading into nothing

Show me the way
Silent seas are crying
Melting into everything

Oooh (ey ey)
Oooh (ey ey)
