Breton â€“ Other Peopleâ€™s Problems
LABEL: FatCat Records
Today sees the release of the London based four-piece Bretonâ€™s debut album, â€śOther Peopleâ€™s Problemsâ€ť.
Breton are primarily film-makers with cutting-edge video and sound design work under their belts, delivering innovative remixes for the likes of Local Natives, Tricky, Tom Vek and Temper Trap, as well as being award winners and regular fixtures at film festivals for their independent short films.
The single â€śInterferenceâ€ť, featured on the album, has already received solid support from Radio 1 with DJs Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens and Annie Mac playing it on their show. The band also recently toured with Tom Vek and Ghostpoet, and they are headlining a sold-out show at Corsica Studios, London on 28th March, followed by Manchester on 29th and Leeds on 30th before they go on to gig in Europe, Canada and America.
Predicted to be the â€śUK indie upstartsâ€ť of 2012 by Sound on Sound, Breton are a band to watch out for this year.
QÂ â€“ â€śElegant strings and brass, recorded by Hauschka, creep like ivy around this all-consuming debut’s clipped beats, pummelles basslines, shimmering synths and fluttering pianos and harp.â€ť 4 stars
NotionÂ â€“ â€śSchizo, sample-driven experimenta with choruses: oddly compellingâ€ť
