Breakneck Love
Breakneck Love started as a passion project of Gio Recchi, who after compiling a body of work, reached out to fellow musicians Matt Jorgenson and Sawyer Thompson of Fringe Shift, and Ryan O'Connor. After destroying multiple dimensions with sick riffs, the songs were fine tuned to only ride the limit of aurally immense sickness as to better preserve the life of future generations.

Gio, Sawyer, and Matt played together in several different projects together throughout their musical journey, developing a combination of their respect for the hard hitting power of rock, and their reverence of the adaptability of modern pop. Ryan proved to be the missing keystone to their sound, and together they've forged a unique blend of dueling vocals, walls of synth, and aggressive strings and percussion.
There are few bands that can tear at the emotional fabric of one’s being the way Dearheart can. From songs that engage the genre-standards of relational breakups and lost love to songs that plumb the depths of anxiety, loneliness, and depression, Steve Denler lays bear before the listener the inner process and experienced emotions in an intimate, inviting way that draws the listener into the process along with him. You can’t help but be thrown into the heartache or anxiety-ridden anger that is expressed so openly within the songs, something done not only with the hard-hitting soundscape produced by the fusion of an extremely talented group of musicians but also by the extreme depth found within the lyrics.

The band, at its heaviest (as in their song “Secrets”) flirts with post-hardcore, driven by the intricacy and drive of Brandon’s (“Ezekiel Lords”) technical, hard-hitting drumming, while also swinging occasionally into a more poppy setting (as in their song “Same New Love”) with the floaty and catchy guitar riffs supplied by Craig “Suede” Furnivall. Threading all of it together is the masterful art that Gregory Olson provides on the bass, which, by the way, he builds himself. And with each song, Steve Denler supplies the emotional layering from the whispers to the yells that swing you from hope to despair, from longing to anger at the flick of a verse.
