Sometimes you don’t need any words. Sometimes, the instrumentation can speak for itself. 23 year-old Brooklyn-based producer Breaking‘s “Rough Cut” is a prime example, as its lush melodies and crisp sequencing tell a story all by themselves. The self-directed visual accompaniment adds yet another layer of intrigue to the experience.
This particular song has been in the works for over a year. Rough Cut explained: “this song was originally written for a short film I directed and scored called Babyteet. However, the realization of this idea proved to be different than the idea going so it was scrapped from both the film and the soundtrack for tonal differences.”
