NEW RELEASE: JUMP THE SHARK - 28.07.23
The Breakdown are thrilled to announce the release date of their latest single, "Jump the Shark". A captivating musical commentary on the highs and lows of long-running television series, embodying the journey of a fictional show through it’s narrative progression. The song explores the anticipation of cliff-hangers, the decline in originality often seen in later seasons, and the existential questions evoked in viewers. In doing so, it serves as a metaphor for life itself, pondering whether we are merely experiencing 'filler' moments or significant turning points.
