Broken Water

Olympia, WA's Broken Water seem caught between two worlds, though both could've existed in 1993. They have a fuzzy, pop side, as well as an aggressive, grungy punk side. They seem to like the dichotomy, and both sides can be heard on their new album, Wrought, which is out now via Night-People Records. You can stream a few songs from it (and the whole thing via Rdio) below.

The band will be heading to the East Coast for a few shows, including two in NYC: June 27 at Union Pool with Grooms and Rips (tickets), and June 28 at Elvis Guesthouse with Katrina Stoneheart, and Mami (tickets).

All dates, plus song streams and flyers for both NYC shows, below...
