Lindemann also dropped a music video alongside the single.
On “break me!,” Lindemann’s polished vocals stand against the clangourous wall of her accompaniment. Sharp, violent sounds dart to and fro during the track’s runtime, lending her icy voice some of their edge. Just when things begin to get a bit too cold, Siiickbrain interjects halfway through the song, providing some warmth.
Lindemann spoke about the themes of “break me!” in a press release.
“It’s all the feelings it gives you, that rush of fear and adrenaline, but also the calmness and peace,” Lindemann says. “The video is meant to convey the juxtaposition of the two – one moment you’re euphoric, and the next you feel like you’re broken, suffocating and your heart is decaying.”
