Arcane Tongues Unveils Heartfelt Single ‘Broken Promises’ – A Grunge-infused Tale of Resilience and Reflection

4th October 2023 0 By Jon Deaux

London-based alternative rock band Arcane Tongues has now released their highly anticipated debut single, “Broken Promises,”


“Broken Promises,” written by singer and guitarist Alvaro Alonso, resonates as a poignant reflection on the trials and tribulations faced during challenging times. The song offers an intimate glimpse into his own experiences navigating mental health struggles and confronting feelings of hopelessness in the uncertain aftermath of the pandemic.


This powerful single holds a special place in the heart of the band as it was the first song written for this new project. Inspired by what Alonso describes as one of the loneliest nights of his recent life, the lyrics encapsulate raw emotion, expressing the pain of shattered expectations and the yearning for healing. The music mirrors this emotional landscape, featuring dynamic variations reminiscent of the 90s Grunge era – a style akin to the impactful soundscapes of Nirvana, one of Alonso’s profound musical influences.


As the first release leading up to their debut album, “Broken Promises” paves the way for the band’s forthcoming full-length project, “Third-Degree Burnout.” The single provides a tantalizing preview of the captivating sonic journey that awaits listeners upon the album’s release. With its fusion of introspection and pulsating energy, “Broken Promises” sets the stage for an album that promises to captivate and resonate on a deeply emotional level.
