Broken Beak – “Saint” Video

Broken Beak began as the solo project of Beau Brynes, who has been putting out music under the name for a few years now, the most fleshed-out of which was last year’s Curse Burner EP. The project has filled out to a full band since then, one that includes Modern Baseball’s Brendan Lukens on guitar and Jake Ewald as a producer. Their debut album, Some Nerve, is out later this year, and “Saint” is its throbbing lead single. Brynes sounds downtrodden and conflicted in the chorus: “Is this bliss? Am I figured out?” he asks. “This is intense, I am full of doubt.” The song rumbles with the anxiety of giving all of yourself away — “You should know why I keep quiet/ If I keep on, then you’ll keep wondering” — and ends on a reminder that it’s fine to hold onto some things for you only, at least for a time: “Some pain is mine for just a little bit/ Some pain is fine.” The track comes with a live video shot by Emily Dubin and filmed at Brooklyn’s Shea Stadium and Philly’s The Metal Shop — watch and listen via Noisey below.
