[Indie-Electronic] Guy Horne – Broken Before

Meet Guy Horne, hailing from Manchester, a city that’s given us legends like The Stone Roses & Oasis. This Autumn, amidst the cozy vibes and pumpkin-spiced everything, “Broken Before” will be upon us, the latest release from quickly-growing talent Guy Horne.

Music-wise, the guy’s on fire. “Broken Before,” produced with the uber-talented Ed Graves and Grammy-ace Oli Jacobs, is just a glimpse of what he’s cooking up. He’s rocked out on BBC Introducing, teamed up with top-tier producers, and there’s even some chatter about a drum and bass remix with DNMO.

“Broken Before” is more than just a upbeat experience. It’s raw, touching on the tender spots left by past relationships. Inspired by memories with an ex who shared his love for songwriting, this single will hit you right in the feels.

Now, while Oasis might sing about wanting to “Live Forever,” Guy’s been making waves both in and out of the studio. Besides being dubbed the Young Property Personality of the year, he’s been all about making a change, raising a cool $1 billion for Affordable Housing in the UK.

So, as the leaves fall and this single hits the airwaves, sit back, relax, and tune in. Guy Horne, the ‘new British Indie Pop’ voice, is about to become more widespread than anticipated.
