Breton’s M.O. appears to be quite a confusing mix of Foals-esque dynamics, avant-garde These New Puritans bits, dense electronica and a visual wing called BretonLABS. I’ve found their debut album Other People’s Problems (out this week on Fat Cat) to be a fairly bewildering release but one that I’ve been drawn back to. There’s something there that is magnetising. I feel like I’m at that stage where it’s about to grab me by the neck and tomorrow night (Tuesday 27th) is the perfect opportunity to find out how it all translates live when they hit the Academy 2.
If you would like to see Breton live in the Academy 2, email [email protected] before Tuesday lunchtime.
