Album Premiere: Breton – War Room Stories

If Breton‘s debut full-length, 2012′s Other People’s Problems, felt like a very domestic affair – its foreboding artwork featured South London’s imposing Heygate Estate, while much of its subject matter appeared geared towards life in the nation’s capital – the quintet’s second album, War Room Stories, is …

BOTW Video: Breton – Edward The Confessor

We’ve totally hyped up Breton‘s swazz video making skills but now’s the chance to see for yourself just how clever they are. ‘Edward The Confessor’ is gritty, black and white Top Boy-esque  footage of youngsters on a council estate that eventually lose their tempo at the end of …
