Kat Baker, Tony Baker and Lonnie Phillips are the members of rising Chicago based rock band, Broken Robots. Harnessing an eclectic sound: whispery, melancholic vocals, with bass lines that sound like a cross between Seinfeld and The Faint‘s bassist, Dapose. Broken Robots have a style that cannot easily be compared.
The music video features the three band mates performing DIMES AND QUARTERS in various locations, showcasing their chemistry and tenderness. “I’ve been feeling like a fish, out of water. I’ve been trying to pay the rent with dimes and quarters.” The chorus is deeply felt throughout the song (especially if you’ve ever been broke) and it never feels repetitive. Their compositional style along with their build ups, crescendoing runs, late bridge, and even a guitar solo from Tony Baker, all feel in good taste. This song contains a well thought out and complex structure; which is appreciated in the day and age of formulaic pop rock and pop bands.
Dimes and Quarters is the 4th song from the upcoming EP THE ESCAPE ARTIST. Written and produced by Kat Baker, Tony Baker, and Lonnie Phillips, mastered by Blaise Barton working out of Joyride Studios. The music video was produced, directed, shot and edited by Joel Lopez of Lumbra Records. Broken Robots offer something different in the current saturated world of music and their single, DIMES AND QUARTERS, is in our permanent rotation.
