First sight: Breton

Breton are a five-piece band based in south London, who spend their time 'deconstructing and reassembling popular culture'

Who are they?

"Breton is film. Breton is sound. Breton is about audio and audio-visual autopsy; deconstructing and reassembling popular culture." Well, that's what they say.

And what do you say?

They're a five-piece band based in south London. But, it's fair to say, they are more than a five-piece band. Their base is The Lab, where all five live and work, making not just music but music videos, films and remixes.

Veritable renaissance men, then?

Well, we reserve that title for people who also design siege engines. But they're clearly no dolts, as the clip for their single Edward the Confessor makes plain – an arty black and white piece, made by Niall O'Brien and the band's multimedia arm, bretonLABS.

With that name and a song called Edward the Confessor, they must be folkies.
