As I mentioned, these five tracks (which run about 3:30 a piece) are too little to get a good taste for what Breton has to offer. You get experimental sounding tunes that go from up beat tempos and upbeat moods to more relaxed and sullen tempos. The two that I will recommend are “Ordnance Survey” and “The Well”. The first offers a glimpse of the bright and cheery side of the group (and I can’t forget to mention the catchiness it’s capable of). The one thing that really makes this song is the organ in the background. When you first hear it you feel as if it might ruin the rest of the sound but it doesn’t. It helps earn the indie cred and respect for music goers. How many other groups do you hear using an organ in the background and it actually sounds gratifying to the ears?
Now, when it comes to “The Well” you’ll get a little more taste of the organ, which will again make you question the potential credentials this group might be capable of, but the mediocre, mellow toned singing that comes forth accompanied by a beat that sounds like the make-shift back drop to a basement rap battle is purely ingenious. Alright, take a listen for yourself, watch the video, and tell us what you think? Is the organ the deal breaker?Melissa Moreno
