8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 30 May 2012
East London upstarts Breathe Out are getting in on the whole self-release scene with a run of limited 7” on their own imprint. The band have previously released an EP on Art Is Hard which I’ve not heard but this is pretty decent.
‘Champion’ is a college rock influenced scuzz-pop affair that matches breezy pop melody, scruffy solos and loose but lively grooves in a very complimentary fashion. It reminds me of Bivouac or one of them lost grunge-aping UK bands of the early to mid-nineties.
Flip it and ‘Cut Out And Keep’ is considerably more lo-fi and all the better for it. A distant, thin guitar whine apes the catchy vocal melody that sits somewhere between MBV and Pavement. Actually this is well Pavement.
