The press notes describe Breton as "inscrutable" but let's try, shall we? This south London collective hitch disjointed, ambient electronics to a swaggering rock sensibility in a way that suggests Kasabian having a Radiohead moment.

From the thudding trip-hop of "Pacemaker" to the baggily anthemic "Electrician", it's broodingly impactful stuff, only hampered by the kind of self-parodically indie-kid vocals that remain in a permanent state of posturing ennui.
