Team Picture are a sextet from Leeds with as much connection and coherence with each other as their name and pictures suggest. Over the course of the last few years they've released a number of hype-inducing singles, but coming into 2018 they've stepped it up a notch as they head towards their debut mini-album Recital, due on June 1st. Already this year they've released '(I Have A) Little Secret', '(I Want Your) Life Hack' and 'Strange Year' - and today we bring you the next piece of the puzzle, 'Break Yr Heart'.

The creativity among the six-piece allows them to move in several different directions and still all work together; on the forthcoming recital they have two distinctly different halves, the first being a synthy guitar-pop blast, while the second shows off their down and dirty fuzz rock side. 'Break Yr Heart' is from the latter part, and matches a perfectly tried-and-tested subject of sexual deviousness with a cunning and driving rock sound. With a bluesiness sticking to the incessant bass, the vocal elements are also charged with a restless energy to match. This is all super-charged by the winding guitars that wheel their way throughout the song, dragging it along with a determined urgency that builds and recedes and builds again with painful enthusiasm.

By way of introduction to 'Break Yr Heart', the band tells us: "‘Break Yr Heart’ is kind of a classic rock song with a fuzzy bottom end and some really seat-of-the-pants vocals. Kind of like The Stooges if they were a bunch of nerds.”

Listen below.
