Published Dec 06, 2012Montreal band the Breezes have been kicking around for a few years now, and they're ready to independently released their debut full-length. The self-titled album will be released on CD, vinyl and as a digital download on December 11.
A press release notes that this record expands on classic pop formula and marks a departure from the band's druggy past works. It was record at Montreal's Breakglass Studios and mixed by band member James Benjamin, who has also lent his studio talents to Purity Ring and CFCF.
The album is reportedly "a melodic, rich and robust group of songs, sprinkled with layers of vocal harmonies" and builds upon jangling guitars, catchy melodies and mellow turns.
For a taste of the record's tuneful sound, watch a video for narcotically chilled-out album cut "Promethean Eyes" below. The video is a little on the NSFW side, as you'll see a girl showering before getting in bed with a guy while wearing a leather outfit and indulging in some wax play.
The Breezes will launch the album with a December 11 show at La Sala Rossa in Montreal with CFCF and Suite.
