Breaking Point combines cinematic ambient music with a pulsating driving rhythm and melodic guitar, it becomes a night drive journey, a voyage in synthwave - moody, complex, ethereal - an electronic score that hypnotises and evolves.

Marconi Union’s Duncan Meadows tell us that it began as an ambient piece. “It's a good example of what we were trying to achieve with Signals in making the ambience part of the music, as opposed to being background.”

Jamie Crossley says that it sounded like an ambient Krautrock track initially but then grew into a more structured arrangement. “I think it takes you up and down and sometimes even sideways if you’re lucky.”

“It’s a ‘journey track’, one that gives you a sense of being in motion,” adds Richard Talbot. He really likes the combination of the motorik rhythm and the melodic guitar line which has echoes of Sleepless from their second album Distance (2005). “I guess it feeds into all my fantasies of music literally taking you on a journey”.
