The Record Breakers head for new terrain with their single and video In My Car — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
On the surface, the Canadian country-popsters have the standard checklist for a stellar contemporary band: Two main vocalists, guitarists, and songwriters in Hayden Nolan and Bella Galasso, accompanied by knockout keys, bass, and drums from Michael Vallinakis, Devan Meisner and Julian Galasso. But dig a little deeper and you discover The Record Breakers are so much more. First formed in 2014 for a Beatles-related celebration, the band began to explore and develop their identity as a bilingual five-piece with a knack for solid musical arrangements, memorable hooks, and larger than life harmonies.
“We had a special encounter with Blue Rodeo,” they recall. “That inspired us to bring country into our pop sound. So we’re a country band — we just sing about cars instead of trucks, you could say!”
2016 saw the release of their self-titled debut EP, with the sophomore offering Bigger Plans landing in 2018. That summer, they opened for Bon Jovi at the Montreal Bell Centre, something they bill as an “opportunity of a lifetime.” This year, they created a song and collaborative video Quarantine With You.
