about break away
Hey, thanks for listening. This is Break Away, our debut single. It's a fierce, female-fronted rock song about cutting ties with bad companies / people in our lives. It has a raw, rasping guitar, precise, clinical drum riff, and impassioned vocals, like a protest song. Classic / garage rock. We hope you enjoy. Thanks, H&P @ First Frontier
The time comes in everyone's life when they realise that some things simply aren't sustainable. Break Away is about having the courage to cut bad things and people out of your life. Perhaps it's a company that is not trying hard enough to be better to our planet. Break Away. Perhaps it's that friend that doesn't appreciate how much they take from your friendship without giving anything in return. Break Away! Maybe it's a significant other who isn't supportive or respectful. In these moments we must speak truth to power and BREAK AWAY. 
First Frontier bio 
“So much toxicity pollutes the sea in my environment” (Break Away)
Birmingham-based garage rock duo, First Frontier, make spirited, upbeat music to move to and be moved by. They've unleashed the frenzy of their energetic rhythms and soul-searching, upbeat lyrics on audiences since 2020 in a manner that has mostly been appreciated by human people.
First Frontier are Helena, pounding drums, and Paul, flogging guitar, with both sharing vocal duties; Brummie banter and Northern grit smelted down to forge new music, described by genuine human people as either neo-garage, post-punk and rock in many a guise. But who really knows what genre is anymore?
The Longer (but still totally interesting) Story
H&P met in 2016 when the comparatively saner status quo of the UK was upended and found solace and normality in one another. It wasn’t until 2019 that this started to manifest itself musically rather than as general angst and occasional overeating. They sought the only outlet they knew that could bring us all together and spark joy: upbeat music. A glorious counterpoint to all the negativity and frustration. And thus, dear friends, First Frontier was born. 
When it all came spilling out in rhythm and verse, everything started to make sense. In this age of one hundred micro-social revolutions, they asked themselves: how can we help? How do we hinder? What’s the glue that connects rather than divides? From these questions came an answer. A debut EP named Just Matter. At its core their songs on the Just Matter EP are about kicking arse at what you can control and devoting positive energy to that, rather than being distracted by the great litany of uncontrollables.
First Frontier's songs are a gleeful celebration of the good and an examination of the complexity of existence. Join them in rejecting the mundanity of everyday life by escaping together in music and living life to the effing max. 
“Hey, hey, we've gotta break away” (Break Away)
Break Away Lyrics​​​​​​​
So much toxicity pollutes the sea
In my environment
You’re the lead paint that seeps into our bones
Evacuates our homes (No!)
More rat race, gonna make a safe space
Running out of time
Clean up this wasteland of a union
‘Cos you have crossed the line

Hey, hey, we’ve gotta break away
Hey, hey, we’ve gotta break away
Hey, hey, we’ve gotta break away
Hey, hey, we’ve gotta
Break away

Exhale, the air in here is getting stale
Inhuman sickness
Outfoxed, outnumbered and outgrown
You’ll soon be overthrown (No!)
More fun tho’ gonna Marie Kondo
You and your pollutants
Mutate my living for a better life
Perform this ablution

Hey, hey, we’ve gotta break away
Hey, hey, we’ve gotta break away
Hey, hey, we’ve gotta break away
Hey, hey, we’ve gotta
Break away

Sad waste, bad taste
Yea it’s time to break away
Too late, wrong date
Cut you out and break away

Hey, hey, we’ve gotta break away
Hey, hey, we’ve gotta break away
Hey, hey, we’ve gotta break away
Hey, hey, we’ve gotta
Hey, hey, we’ve gotta break away
Hey, hey, we’ve gotta break away
Hey, hey, we’ve gotta break away
Hey, hey, we’ve gotta
Break away
