Bristol-based five-piece collective Hicktown Breakout continues to pride themselves on creating original country-influenced modern music with an upbeat, rocky edge coupled with engaging vocals.
In November 2019, the band released their self-titled debut EP, which reached #36 in the UK all-genre Album Charts and #3 in the Country Chart. In 2021, Hicktown Breakout released their follow-up EP titled ‘Lost Myself’, which again achieved high charting positions in the UK and Europe.
Now, this talented five-piece group are about to unveil the brand new single “Born To Be Free” on March 25th, which centres around the story of a guy desperate to keep the girl of his dreams. Unfortunately, he also knows that it is never going to last & it’s only going to end badly for him: she is a free spirit, and nothing he can say or do will ever change this.
This ballad features an ear-catching country-influenced instrumental that carries a host of emotional textures, which echo the raw sentimentality that flows within the lyrical heart of this moving piece.
The way the instrumental mirrors the lyrics is a truthfully musical spectacle that keeps you fully captivated & leaves you wanting to instantly relisten.
I feel that this song highlights the unique musical creativity this group possess & conveys a new light on their ever-evolving musical style. This is another exciting chapter in this group’s musical journey.
