Proudly partnered with:
“The Brighton four-piece have enormous promise”
“Lo-fi and cagey, with more than a few hints of becoming anthemic”
Brighton based four-piece Breathe Panel combine elements of shoegaze, garage-rock and psychedelia in their up-coming new single ‘Sunrise/Sunshine’, released on celebrated label, FatCat Records. The track is taken from their upcoming self-titled debut album due out on July 13th.
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.
‘Sunrise/Sunshine’ utilises the best parts of Breathe Panels sonic arsenal with dreamy, reverb-laden vocal hooks and jagged duel guitars. Of the track, the band tell us “It’s a comment on how the unpredictable changes in nature can be beautiful and sometimes frustrating, and a reflection on how that can mirror in relationships between humans. We decided on this theme as we thought the guitar lines sounded like blooming flowers or plants with a constant underlying tension, so we went from there.”
Signed to FatCat Records (C Duncan, TRAAMS, The Twilight Sad) and now based between London and Brighton, Breathe Panel are gearing up to release their debut album in 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.
Breathe Panel have already shared stages with the likes of The Big Moon, Quilt and Honeyblood, and the band have built a wealth of support since the release of their single ‘On My Way’ which met critical acclaim signifying the band’s immediate promise.
Breathe Panel are: Nick Green (vocals and guitar), Josh Tyler (guitar), Benjamin Reeves (drums) and Alex Turner (bass guitar).
