After the 2015 release of "Ghosts Of The West Coast", an EP with four
unlikely cover versions, that delighted reviewers and fans alike,
"Broken Rainbow" is no:carrier's fourth full-length album. After
starting out in Germany in the mid-1990's, the band's main force Chris
Wirsig relocated to California in 2012, while singer Cynthia
Wechselberger stayed in Germany. Since then the two-piece band grew
into a bigger project, incorporating singers from San Francisco and Los
Angeles, where Chris now lives.
