Three years ago, the story of Breton from London would have probably thrilled quite a few music-fans. However, in 2012, the band’s biography is rather to be found amongst hipster-mainstreamness: it’s more of a artists’ collective than an actual band, which tries to dissolve the borders between Hip-Hop, Indie-Pop and Electronic music. In these days, in which rappers wear skinny jeans, indie-rockers enter the stage with New Era-Caps on their heads and in which the internet not only provides all elements of pop culture for free but also encourages free remixing, the idea of the men around Roman Rappak is to be considered with skepticism and could be seen as a libertine’s coquetry. Nonetheless, Breton manage to balance the genre-mix of Hip-Hop, Indie and Electronica between the obvious poles »arty« and »danceable«, so that a complex and very catchy soundtrack for the often quoted »imaginary film« comes into being. Sound-sketches are being layered, then cut to pieces by beats here and there, and right in the middle of it all, distorted and from far away, Rappak’s melancholy yet fierce lyrics are to be heard. »Other People’s Problems« does not confirm the negative assumption of a calculated and fashionable avant-gardism, but instead surprises as a fresh record, which takes an enjoyable step into the direction of an actual genrelessness.
