Breton, whose second full-length album from earlier this year, War Room Stories, we liked quite a bit, are back with some new material. One of these morsels is called 'Exit Row' and it's more beat-heavy, garage-lilting band music with an organic lustre that rings out with robust bass, dusty house-flavoured piano chords and a very substantial brass section, which plays a large part in the bigger sounds of the track.

The drums switch between a shuffling beat and something more virtuosic, fitting the syncopated synth and guitars in the song's quieter moments; the louder moments soar with indie-electro fire, all the while with subtle, almost spoken-word vocals half-slurring throughout. Typically Breton, there's a lot of focus on the hardness of the beats and grand, cinematic atmospheres.

War Room Stories (Deluxe Edition) is out 10th November. You can pre-order it digitally and also physically.
