Brek mainly plays original compositions, music with influences from various sources.

They weave together various influences from different styles of folk and popular music.

The band also tries to create an interesting but pleasant atmosphere in their instrumental playing, but also challenging in parts.  In addition there is a focus on the multifaceted use of the Icelandic language in the band’s lyrics. Musical influences come from various sources, but Brek wants to try to weave them together into their soundscape and trying to break down barriers between genres as well as connecting Icelandic folk heritage with other types of folk music.

The band was nominated for the Icelandic Music Awards in the folk music category two years in a row and receivedThe Icelandic Music Award for Album of the Year in folk and world music in 2022 for their debut album.
