Single Review – Everything Everything – Breadwinner

Off the back of a strong fourth studio album in A Fever Dream, one of Manchester’s and indeed the UK’s quality groups Everything Everything have released a new EP in A Deeper Sea and the single single from this is ‘Breadwinner’. In this track recorded during sessions with producer James Ford for their last album, they tackle male identity and mental health. Leading from cascading, buoyant piano chords come Jonathan Higg’s rapid, operatic delivery of their typically obtuse and unavoidable lyrical messages. Into this mix arrives ringing, siren-like guitars and a myriad of shifting electronica to form a instrumental and marked change of tone. This is a song as good as any from their last album and it’s hard to think as to why there was no place for it, though they certainly made the right choice releasing what is relentless track.
