September 30, 2022 BY Jason Currell
Having released the singles “Keeps Me Going” and “Happier” in recent months, Liverpool, England native Michael Nelson aka BANNERS continues his upward ascent on the emotive new offering “Perfectly Broken“. The singles are his first pieces of new material since the widely-praised 2021 EP, It’s Gonna Be OK, which has since garnered more than twenty million streams.
Known for his powerful lyricism around the imperfections of modern love and admiration, “Perfectly Broken” offers up another rousing display of tender tones and heartfelt textures throughout. Blending the warm and vibrant piano-led melodies with some beautifully progressive production, he once again shines a light on unconventional romance to highlight the most alluring parts within all of us.
Speaking about the new track, he said, “I wanted to write a song about how our imperfections are what make us interesting. How other people’s imperfections are what make them interesting and when our jagged edges fit into their jagged edges, that’s when we fall in love.”
