"Immaculately tasteful and effortlessly atmospheric"
Godfathers of Space Rock Melancholia, Breathless follow their
acclaimed melancholy masterpiece 'Green To Blue' with a
Special Limited Edition EP for Record Store Day, featuring
Remixes by Bad Seed / Grinderman drummer Jim Sclavunos
and Pop Divas / DJs The Readers Wifes
Inspired by Kramer's (Butthole Surfers / Galaxie 500) mixes
on 'Green To Blue', Breathless asked Jim Sclavunos and
Readers Wife Jeremy Kimberley to remix two tracks from the album
in their own very individual styles for this Special Record Store Day
release, resulting in two uniquely diverse pop songs, adding a
whole new dimension to Breathless' shoegaze dream pop.

'Please Be Happy', a bittersweet lament, of love and loss.
