with melodies that do the same".

THE BIG TAKEOVER USA 2013
Released to critical acclaim last year, Breathless' melancholy masterpiece 'Green To Blue' features three songs mixed by Kramer. best known for his work with The Butthole Surfers, Galaxie 500 and Low. With additional input and guidance from Ivo Watts-Russell, who Dominic Appleton worked with as a featured singer on This Mortal Coil's 'Filigree & Shadow'. 'Green To Blue' also features original Breathless drummer Tristram Latimer Sayer and backing vocals from fellow This Mortal Coil contributor Heidi Berry.
Available as an eleven track double album on vinyl and CD, both in lavish gatefold sleeves, 'Green To Blue' harks back to the sound of classic Breathless, with layers of vocals enveloped in reverb, floating over walls
of echoed guitars and rumbling drums, traces of Barrett era Pink Floyd interwoven with fragments of Eno, Joy Division and early 4AD. Yet this is
very much the sound of now. Dominic Appleton's voice of a fallen angel, totally unique in it's breathtaking beauty. The colour washes and explosive post rock soundscapes now interspersed with dreamy shoe-gaze pop songs, twangy guitar and swooning E Bow. This is Breathless' heartbreak album, overflowing with evocative, fragile beauty contained within sorrowful melodies and eruptions of shimmering, volcanic guitar, their hymn of love and loss. exquisitely sad, and sweetly maudlin, darkly brooding,
yet strangely uplifting.
Followed this Spring by the 'Please Be Happy' EP, featuring remixes by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds / Grinderman drummer Jim Sclavunos and Readers Wife, Jeremy Kimberley (DJs at London's legendary Art / Cabaret nightclub Duckie), Inspired by Kramer's mixes on 'Green To Blue', Breathless asked Jim Sclavunos and Jeremy Kimberley to remix two tracks from the album in their own very individual styles, resulting in two uniquely diverse pop songs, adding a whole new dimension to Breathless' shoegaze dream pop.
