Londonderry Concerts on Common to Feature Best Not Broken

Jun 11, 2013 No Comments by

Londonderry Concerts on the Common features Best Not Broken on Wednesday, June 19, 2013. For a complete schedule and more details visit Concerts on the Common online.

Best Not Broken took shape in 2007 and has quickly evolved from a New England club favorite to an original band with burgeoning regional popularity. The pop/alternative rock quintet draws influence from genres as diverse as the experiences that shape its songs. Blending rhythmic underpinnings reminiscent of Britpop, post-punk, and reggae, the band weaves melodic themes that evoke memories of 80’s synth-pop with indie-rock guitar layers that alternately rise and chime. At times delicate and at times driving, Best Not Broken’s songs abound with vibrant lyrical landscapes rooted in singer-song-writer sensibility, resulting in a sound that is at once familiar yet satisfyingly contemporary… and definitively its own.

Making a name for itself as one of the premier up-and-coming pop/alternative rock groups in the Northeast, Best Not Broken has performed with national acts like Billboard-topping recording artists Jason Derulo (Whatcha Say, In My Head, Ridin’ Solo), Matt Nathanson (Come On Get Higher, Car Wash), and members of the band formerly known as Boston (More Than A Feeling, Peace of Mind, Amanda).

When all is said and done, Best Not Broken’s heart beats in its songs—songs that are alive with emotion, unifying listeners with stories of our human condition—a condition that is, after all, best not broken. It is this very human condition upon which Best Not Broken has built its movement: a movement that is rooted in sharing the emotions that shape who we are: the love, the pain, the laughter, the triumph and the truth. A movement that reaches beyond music and seeks to create a better place among us. A movement that started long ago, but still has only just begun.
