Fragile people can be met everywhere, but they grow in numbers because of the great illogical and fair society. All these - music, sound effects, lyrics and vocals - tell us and remind about that. I really appreciate telling about such things, since a person should be corageous to withstand the troubles and many other things. That's a strong push; though 'our society' cowardly prefers to avoid such themes. Guys, you are strong enough to shake it and roll over it with your expression.
This song gives you strength threw it true & pure emotions. The mix of the music that soothe the soul. Leaving you feeling that the world is full of beauty even if it hurts you sometimes. Thank you for staying true to yourselves & continue with making music.

“Something Broke Inside” narrates waking from a nightmare, coughing blood laced with shards of broken glass – the psychological aftermath of contaminated intimate relationships, angst, and isolation. Following on the heels of tAngerinecAt’s last album, Many Kettles, featuring “Roses from Blood,” the imminent “Something Broke Inside” is at once a sonic and artistic tour-de-force.
Made up of non-binary Eugene Purpurovsky and Paul Chilton, the two artists first got together in 2003, followed by touring the Ukraine, UK, and Russia. In 2014, they took the name tAngerinecAt, beguiling audiences with their electrifying, cathartic performances full of arresting, unparalleled fusions of sound, including hurdy-gurdy, whistles, duda, harmonica, and avant-garde layers of electronic music.
Intertwined with Eugene's deeply personal lyrics tackling themes of severe trauma, childhood abuse, poverty, gender inequality, dehumanization, stigma, persecution, and the challenges of being a migrant from a poor post-Soviet country at war, tAngerinecAt’s creations evoke the serrated edge of the task of being human.
Since then, tAngerinecAt has released four albums, toured extensively, received beaucoup airplay on BBC 2, BBC 3 and BBC 6, and performed at myriad festivals: Knockengorroch Festival, Eden Festival, Equinox Festival, Willowman Festival, Leigh Folk Festival, Festival8, Festival x-24, Fire In the Mountain, Llangollen Fringe Festival, Blue Lagoon Festival, Tanner Fest, Radnor Fringe Festival, Alice's Wicked Tea Party, Wrex Fest, Hidden Hill Festival, JudeAnt Festival, Krayina Mriy, and Trypilske Kolo, along with others.
Surging with complex visceral textures, simultaneously potently dark and despairing, “Something Broke Inside” travels on a stark rhythmic beat enhancing Eugene’s piercing vocals, infusing the tune with feelings of oil-and-water, while layers of sound assemble uneasiness.
Awoken in fear
By my silent scream.
I dreamt of spitting shards with blood.
Did something break inside?
What was that?
Made of glass,
The body didn’t hurt.
But inside all torn
And screaming: “What was that?”
Have you ever heaved up blood,
Shattered like glass,
What was that?

Brilliant production covering an impressive range of IDM, ambient, glitch and even elements of DnB. The Butterfly Effect is especially captivating and is one of many highlights to be found on this EP. Highly recommended! Jeff Haight
