Today’s new music spotlight is on Breathe Panel.
Line-up: Nick Green (vocals/guitar), Josh Tyler (guitar), Benjamin Reeves (drums) and Alex Turner (bass)
About: 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 crafted their own sound based around the intuitive songwriting partnership of Josh and Nick.
The band combine elements of shoegaze, dream-pop and psychedelia on their debut self-titled album – out now on celebrated label FatCat Records (C Duncan, TRAAMS, Sigur Rós). The album has received critical acclaim as BBC 6 Music’s Album Of The Day and has received support from the likes of John Kennedy (Radio X), Matt Wilkinson (Beats 1), KEXP, Felix White (Soho Radio), NME, So Young Magazine, DIY, Dork and Clash. Breathe Panel have now shared their brand new DIY video ‘On My Way’ ahead of their first UK headline tour.
What Hidden Herd say: With shimmering shoegaze guitars, intricate drum patterns and washed-out vocals, Breathe Panel’s psych-tinged dream-pop is wonderfully introspective and utterly hypnotising.
