The Breakaways are a traditional classic instrumental surf band. These Fender playin' guys have a knack for a softer brand of surf instrumental that is very attractive and very traditional, yet lush and round. Most of the arrangements are with lead guitar supported by two rhythm guitars, one dry chords and one damped and heavily reverbed, not unlike the Astronauts'. Time Surfin' is a fine CD of well done surf instros. Review of the CD from surfrockmusic.com: I must confess that my first choice of surf styles is traditional. I prefer it's overall sound and feel much more than the modern styles. Maybe it's the equipment. Maybe it's the way it's played. Whatever the reason, it's my preference. Sad thing is, finding traditional surf music is very difficult these days. Let me rephrase that a bit ... finding good traditional surf music is very difficult these days. So, I consider the day I was asked to review The Breakaways Time Surfin' CD to be one of my luckiest. This is a really fantastic collection of classic style surf rock. The Breakaways are a traditional surf band. They use only vintage Fender equipment to achieve that classic surf sound. And I can say, without any reservation, they have totally and completely captured that classic '60s surf sound. The Breakaways are a blast from the past and are deeply connected to some of the best traditional surf music you're ever going to hear. They are a breath of fresh salt air.
