‘Broken Arrow’ is a colourful return to the music scene for Francis Novotny. Blending together a lurid mix of hip-hop, R&B and atmospheric electronica, Novotny creates yet another of his “brooding but expansive” bedroom masterpieces. Novotny hails from Sweden, and is no stranger to the French House scene, which can certainly be recognised in his mix of global sounds.

Novotny describes ‘Broken Arrrow’ as “a metaphor for someone who is attacking you, but you’re too strong to let the person get to you. An arrow is a weapon, but you can’t do much with a broken one.”
