Australian trio Breve have circumvented the early autumn and released a track so dark it will grab you by the legs and plunge you headfirst into an etherial, otherworldly wintery chasm. But don’t worry, it’s got a warm edge to it, too.
Breve have spent the past couple of years calving out a fuzzy niche for themselves as a head pounding psyche-rock act, but things don’t always go to plan. Last year saw the band undergo a line-up change and this seems to have led Breve to explore more cerebral and shadowy corners of the musical landscape.
The band’s new track ‘Movement’ is the first cut to be taken from their forthcoming debut album, and it’s got enough dark energy to bind an entire universe together. The song sees the trio charge headlong into the realm of hunting post-rock as the track swells with reverse running synth loops and measured cyclical beats. But before you know it, the song explodes with drum crashes and waves of moody, razor sharp guitar that sound like an ambient take on Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.
‘Movement’ slowly burns like a smouldering fuse before igniting a powder keg of post-rock that erupts into a track of anthemic proportions.
‘Introverse/Movement’ Double A-side 7″ is out on 1st October through Psychic Ric Records.
