Warnings is the third album from I Break Horses a.k.a Maria Lindén. Faced with making the follow-up to 2014's plush Chiaroscuro, she chose to put an emphasis on instrumental, cinematic music. While watching a collection of her favorite films, with the sound muted, she made her own soundtrack sketches. These sonic workouts gradually evolved into something more. "It wasn't until I felt an urge to add vocals and lyrics," says Lindén, "that I realized I was making a new album." Warnings, is an intimate and sublimely expansive return that sets it's own pace with the intuitive power of a much-loved movie. It's sumptuous sound worlds, dreamy mellotrons, haunting loops, analogue synths and layered lyrics crackle with immersive dramatic tension. "It's not a political album, though it relates to the alarmist times we live in. Each song is a subtle warning of something not being quite right."
