The Great Escape - Music & More

Today, BODEGA announce their long-awaited second album, Broken Equipment, ahead of a March 11th release date on the evergreen What's Your Rupture? Alongside the news, the band are sharing its infectious lead single 'Doers'. Inspired by self-help books and vlogs, it tackles the toxic side of forced productivity and slyly pokes funs at Daft Punk with its central mantra of "bitter, harder, fatter, stressed out."

The follow-up to the band's acclaimed debut album, Endless Scroll (2018), and 2019's Shiny New Model EP, Broken Equipment was inspired by a book club. In the early months of 2020, the Brooklyn art-punk incendiaries gathered together with close friends to study the works of a wide range of philosophers. Passionate debates lasting long into the night became a regular occurrence, motivating the band to become as ideologically unified as the weighty tomes they were reading. Broken Equipment is BODEGA's attempt to interrogate the external factors that make them who they are, propelling existential quandaries with tongue-in-cheek humour, highly personal lyrics, and irresistible grooves.

The album's 12 songs are set in present day New York City, packing in references to contemporary issues of algorithmic targeting, media gentrification, and the band itself. On 'NYC (disambiguation)', they break down how the Big Apple was 'founded by a corporation' and history remains alive in the present. The poetic 'Pillar on the Bridge of You' is the first love song Ben ever wrote for Nikki, while 'All Past Lovers' gazes back to the 'southern belle' and 'chat room suitor' who still live inside him today.
