Ask any young schoolboy what his ambitions are for the future and he would probably aim to be either a professional footballer or a pop star. Both professions virtually guarantee a period of adulation and wealth. Leaves aren't quite there yet, three quarters of the group ply their trade as semi-professionals footballers in the third division of their native Iceland whilst their musical career is still some way off the big leagues. Yet whilst their day job hasn't quite taken over Europe just yet it has all the ingredients to turn them into the next Coldplay or Doves. 'Breathe' is a supremely confident debut album. Arnar Gudjonsson, the voice of the band, is more than the match of Chris Martin or, indeed, Mansun's Paul Draper, his closest soundalike. Gudjonsson manages to turn the otherwise unremarkable 'Catch' and brooding 'Silence' into rich compositions. 'Epitaph' may be ballad-paced but offers the impression that danger and violence is just around the corner. The album peaks later on with the aggressive Doves-like chorus of 'Alone In The Sun' and the dreamy harmonies of 'Deep Blue'. They do over-reach themselves on the closing 'We' which is too bombastic by far. Forgive them for this as most of 'Breathe' is Premiership quality.
