“From the chopped up strings – here courtesy of German composer Hauschka – on opening track ‘Pacemaker’ through to the skittering beats of album closer ‘The Commission’, the South London collective’s debut is a patchwork of field recordings, distorted sounds and the sort of pop hooks most bands would kill for. The filmmakers-turned-musicians have taken their collective influences and created what is arguably this year’s most interesting, if not electrifying record.” – Ian Pither

The London based four-piece, Breton, released their debut album ‘Other People’s Problems’ back in March. Primarily film-makers with cutting-edge video and sound design work under their belts, they’ve delivered 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.

Predicted to be the “UK indie upstarts” of 2012 by Sound on Sound, Breton have had a fantastic year, proving this to be true with their stunning debut.
