“Breakdown Days” comes from White Lies, an English post-punk revival band from Ealing. They say the song was written in the heart of the first UK lockdown. “We felt trapped in many ways not being able to tour or to work. The lyrics are about yearning to reach out about your problems but because you’re living together, in close quarters, it means you can’t totally lose your shit!”
Lose it or not, this song is ace!
