Feast your ears on the latest EP from London's very own Breton. The Blanket Rule EP caught my attention within the first minute of opening dancetastic track, "Ordinance Survey" for its ability to feel so familiar but so brand new at the same time. The tracks that followed had me dancing around in my seat to their dark electro-rock jams with varying levels of intensity. In just a few listens "Sandpaper" has already become one of my new favorite songs of the year and will most certainly be a go-to song that I will recommend to put on at any party.
The band is comprised of both musicians and award-winning indie film makers, who work on their various media projects at their "base" in London - a former bank they call BrentonLABS. Apparently at their live shows they bring on a fifth band member solely to cut and edit their self-shot movies live in order to further stimulate your senses.
In celebration of their upcoming tour in March, which kicks off on March 21st at Mercury Lounge in NYC, the band is offering The Blanket Rule EP as a free download over on their Facebook page in exchange for a Like (which, after you stream the EP below you will more than definitely be open to that incredibly fair trade.
Be on the lookout for their forthcoming debut full length, Other People's Problems, which is due for a March 26th release courtesy of FatCat Records.
