BRETON – WAR ROOM STORIES

War Room Stories is the latest offering from South-London five-piece Breton. Recorded in Berlin, the album is nothing less than you’d expect from the delightful combo of five strapping English lads and the cultural capital of Europe – it’s energetic, fresh and experimental.

Opening track Envy is poppy and immediately catchy, whereas S Four is glitchy and hypnotic with the vocals reminiscent of Yannis Philippakis (Foals).

The album features an interesting array of tunes – from upbeat tempos to grimy electronica, and shows Breton’s willingness for experimentation and refusal to be pigeon-holed. The only downfall is the album lacks cohesiveness as a whole. (SY)
