Hey you, come and have a listen to Breton, a fairly mysterious group of young film-makers and musicians peddling their wares out of a converted bank in South London. Having already won awards as indie film-makers and worked on videos with Temper Trap and Tricky, the collective have turned their creativity to music, releasing three EP’s last year and starting this year strongly with the eclectic Blanket Rule EP.
Within the space of one short EP, we get the crisp art-rock with a pop punch of the opening track and the fresh indie-dance sounds of “Sandpaper” (two highlights), not to mention easy-listening electronica on “Certain Little Facts”, hip-hop-esque prodction with “The Fall” and gloomy indie on “How Can They Tell”. It might be expected that this much variation would lead to no sound being well honed, or a lack of continuity, but au contraire, monsieur, each track is good on its own, and even better as part of a well rounded, excellently produced EP.
Stream the EP below, and download the whole thing for just a simple like HERE on their Facebook page. Their debut album will be released in March – do you want to hear more from these guys?
