Originally making their name in the pop punk scene, Two Year Break have since transformed their sound into something more diverse and unique. Heavily influenced by artists like Bring Me The Horizon, Enter Shikari, You Me At Six and Don Broco, the London based alt pop-rock outfit blend heavy rock riffs and captivating melodies with electronica.

The band have sold out every headline hometown show they’ve played & have been on a number of headline UK tours in the past couple of years, beginning to make an audible noise on the alt rock scene. They've also made appearances at Evoke Festival, Camden Rocks, Takedown Festival,  and had support slots with As December Falls, The Kut, Hollowstar and TheCityIsOurs (at their sold out Camden Underworld show in April 2022).

Two Year Break's debut album "Do You Wanna Find Love?" (October 2021) was produced by long time friend and co-writer Clint Murphy (Enter Shikari, Busted). All 5 single releases from this album saw extensive radio support from Radio 1, BBC Introducing Essex, Kerrang! Radio and Triple J, with DJ's raving about the band. Most notable of these singles is "Lovin' Every Day", featuring Charlie Simpson of Busted/Fightstar.

2023 was about playing as many shows as possible, and the release of brand new music from their sophomore album "Light It Up",  released in March 2024. The first of these singles - “Don’t Bring Me Down”,  “Listen Up” , "Unoriginal" and latest release "Take It Down", tell the finely crafted story of a Dystopian world, which sees the band as members of The Resistance, fighting to free a futuristic city of its oppressors, The Regime. These stories, created visually by Oli Duncanson, will continue to be developed throughout upcoming single releases, spanning several full record releases.

The singles received great support from the media, with Radio 1 attention from Jess Iszatt, Jack Saunders, Alyx Holcombe and Nels Hylton. “Listen Up” featured as Track of the Week on Alyx Holcombe’s BBC Introducing Rock Show, with “Don’t Bring Me Down” played as part of Radio One’s Giant DJ Hunt. Singles were also featured in daily rotation on Kerrang! Radio and on Kerrang! TV ‘Rated Rock’ playlists..
