Last Thursday (30/3/17) We Broke Free celebrated their fourth birthday in style, with an evening of local talent, breakthrough bands and positive vibes.
Words by Hope Frost.
We Broke Free have blessed the Bournemouth music scene in recent years by showcasing the cream of the indie crop, with the likes of Blossoms and other breakthrough bands performing as part of their locally organised events. Therefore, it was only right that We Broke Free celebrated their fourth birthday with a party at their go to venue; Sixty Million Postcards, and with live performances from some very exciting guests.
The first of these guests included the Bournemouth based band Soul Hole, who kicked the evening off with their fusion of blues and funk-rock. The band played an energetic set which got party goers grooving at the very start of the evening. The back corner of Sixty was a melting pot of passionate vocals and blissed-out dancing from the crowd.
The Modern Strangers headlined the evening. The pair are a pop band from Kent and create uplifting music that’s ideal for any birthday party. Forming in early 2016, they are still fresh off the presses with tracks to match. Their sound has a refreshing up-beat electro-pop sound that bursts with positive energy and good vibes.
The jazzy guitar riffs whipped up the crowd and sent them into a frenzy of jovial dancing, creating perhaps one of the most boogie-filled evenings that sixty has played host to this year. Here’s to many more years of good beer, good vibes, and even better music.
