Breathless are an English band that has existed since the 1980s, led by Dominic Appleton. Breathless were described by LA Weekly as producing “Melodies so lush they could drink a concrete statue of Oliver Reed under the table”[citation needed]. Appleton is also known for his vocal performances on three tracks on This Mortal Coil's 1986 album Filigree & Shadow.[1]

The most recent Breathless album, Green to Blue (2012), featured special guest and This Mortal Coil alumna Heidi Berry, as well as the return of original drummer Tristram Latimer Sayer. His predecessor Martyn Watts had performed with the group from 1987-2006.)[2]
