In September Queensland trio Vixens of Fall released the standout single ‘The Long Game’, which would go on to be streamed in 92 countries and added to stations including Kix Country, 98.9 FM, KiK FM Mareeba, Australian Country Radio and The Wolf. It peaked at #2 on AIR Charts for 100% independent singles and #3 on independent label singles. The sisters also recently joined Golden Guitar winner Melody Moko on tour and were named Most Popular Independent Country Band at the 2021 Independent Country Music Awards.
‘The Long Game’ was written with renowned Australian producer Rod McCormack and Nashville-based writers Sam Gay and Templeton Thompson; new single ‘Break it Easy’ was produced by McCormack and written with his wife, Gina Jeffreys, as well as Gay and Thompson. The single has been released towards the end of the Australian summer and it is a great summer track – happily, there are still enough long, sun-drenched days left to relish how much fun it is. The trio sound like they had a ball recording it, even while the song is, they say, about a heart that has been broken one too many times and the hesitation to dive in when new love emerges, it also sounds very hopeful.
‘Taking chances and loving wholly and solely can prove to be magical,’ they explain. ‘However, wariness plays on one’s mind and the strong desire to let your new love know that if they’re going to break your heart, they’ll need to break it easy, is palpable.’
The accompanying video was made by Jazmyn Bowman of Jazmyn Produces, and filmed in Gympie and Rainbow Beach in Queensland. It leans into the upbeat sound of the track, and is, the sisters say, ‘about finding the freedom and happiness in life and embracing the journey; you never know where it will bring you. The cosmic vibes, the “go with the flow” kind of feeling. Letting yourself jump and enjoy the ride.’
