Album Notes
Described by The LA Weekly as producing “Melodies so lush they could drink a concrete statue of Oliver Reed under the table”, Breathless play shimmering Space Rock soundscapes and love lost laments merging the haunting desolation of Low with the explosive crescendos and brooding atmospherics of Spiritualized and early Pink Floyd. Breathless’ singer Dominic Appleton is also well known for his work with This Mortal Coil.

Criminally underrated
A beautiful effort from start to finish... Evocative lyrics and the most potent blend of layered sonics, Breathless should have been huge in the UK indie pop circle... Between Happiness and Heartache is perhaps my favorite of their (all-solid) releases... Check out "I Never Know Where You Are", "Over and Over" and "You Can Call It Yours"... Highly recommended for any golden-era 4AD fans...
