Tim Kasher – “Break Me Open”

Tim Kasher has a new solo album called No Resolution coming soon, and it finds the Cursive/the Good Life frontman exploring the softer side of his muse. It’s billed as more of a suite of movements than a collection of songs, and that feels true enough on new single “Break Me Open.” We’re dropped into the album’s storyline about a failing marriage, with spare yet energetic guitar balladry bolstered by a string section as Kasher sings, “I’ve got my crosses to bear/ I’ll be your husband, I’ll be your father, I’ll be your friend.” Check it out below.

No Resolution is out 3/3 via Kasher’s new label 15 Passenger. Pre-order it here. He’s going on tour, too. Here are the dates:
