Signed to FatCat Records (C Duncan, TRAAMS, Sigur Rós) and now based in London and Brighton, Breathe Panel released their debut album on July 13th 2018. Recorded with Hookworms frontman and production wizard MJ at his Suburban Home Studio in Leeds, the band have drawn upon musical influences including Chris Cohen, Real Estate and Deerhunter.
Meeting at University, Josh Tyler, Nick Green and Benjamin Reeves sprung out of a vibrant scene of musicians playing and gigging together. Between writing in a shared house basement and taking long walks on the South Downs, Breathe Panel have crafted their own sound based around the intuitive songwriting partnership of Josh and Nick.
Recalling thoughtful days spent outdoors, Nick's vocals wash across bright, shimmering guitars and intricate drum patterns to create something beautifully expansive yet highly introspective. They combine writing about topics including anxiety, colours, people, memories and the cure of nature with capturing a sound that makes them feel good.
The album has received critical acclaim as BBC 6 Music’s Album Of The Day and with support from the likes of John Kennedy (Radio X), Matt Wilkinson (Beats 1), KEXP, Felix White (Soho Radio), Rough Trade, So Young Magazine, DIY, Dork and Clash.
