BREAK WINONA OAK'S BROKEN HEART

October 24, 2019

 

Swedish born, LA-based artist Winona Oak releases her new single “Break My Broken Heart” via Neon Gold Records / Atlantic Records. The single is accompanied by another stunning music video directed by Andreas Öhman. Billboard premiered the song stating "The chorus is explosive, bursting with a spine-tingling melody and sultry arpeggiation." The song follows her runaway debut single “He Don’t Love Me”, which has amassed 6.5 million streams across all platforms to date.

 

Winona Oak about “”Break My Broken Heart”: “

 

You have to be brave to love someone with all your heart. But the biggest risk in life is to not take any risks at all. As long as we’re breathing, what’s one more scar?”

 

The first thing I noticed about this song is the arp line that reminds me of the theme song from "Stranger Things". Winonas enchanting vocals are what kept my attention and eventually the magic explosion of the chorus solidified it.

 

Born and raised in the Nordic forests of Sweden on a small crop of land called Sollerön - known as the Island of the Sun - Winona Oak is every bit as enchanting as her origin story. With a childhood spent encountering more animals than people, she grew up a trained horse acrobat and pursued creative expression however she could, writing poetry and songs from a young age. Born into a musical family, Winona sang throughout her youth and began playing violin at 5 years old and piano at 9 years.
