The new division of EMPT is almost ready for an official launch and it’s been consuming my life so I apologize to all for missing some post the last couple of days. I can’t get into any details at the moment due to non disclosure agreements but it has to do with music and bringing the Et Musique Pour Tous taste outside of the computer, it’s very exciting, we’ll keep you posted.
In these projects I’ve been revisiting a lot of great music and one of the songs that came back into my life was Breakin’ the Chains of Love by Ftiz and the The Tantrums. The song is inspired by old school Motown records and AM ’67 radio, fresh. As the story goes, Fitz’s ex-girlfriend had a neighbor who was getting rid of a old church organ so she put aside their differences and looked out for her old boy and got him to buy it. The gesture inspired Fitz so much that he sat down that night and wrote Breakin’ the Chains of Love and eventually his entire EP Songs For A Breakup Vol. 1, that’s love. The EP is very well produced and features well written songs are full of bittersweet I hate you but I love you lyrics. I’ve been really hip to these Northern soul inspired records lately, can’t get enough. Winds Of Change is def my favorite from the EP, the hook really sounds like something I’ve heard before but I can’t put a finger on it. If anyone knows what is it leave it the comments, enjoy.
