For the past few years Sydney based songwriter and performer Dominic Breen has been captivating audiences, music industry pundits and fellow artists alike.
His two acclaimed EPs (“The Lay Low” EP , and “Rattlin'”), introduced listeners to Breen’s distinctive musical world; as well as his rare gift for highly personal, observational lyrics that evoke a vivid sense of place and time. Many of these songs have been accompanied by moving videos exploring the themes covered in his songs.
Dominic Breen’s much anticipated debut album will be released in Mid 2021. Produced and mixed with Tim Fitz from Middle Kids, the album will be heralded by several evocative singles – including the current track “James Street Tonight”, and the upcoming single, “Under Your Sorrow”.
Dom’s live performances have ratcheted up to a new level this year. As venue restrictions have eased he has been playing across Sydney with his stunning band, and beginning to venture further afield. Plans are in place for many more shows across the country (both in band and solo formats) to celebrate the album’s release, and leading into Summer.
“Since he first appeared on the scene back in 2018, Breen has been a hard-working staple of the Sydney music community, with two full-length EPs arriving over the last two years. Now though, Breen has his sights set on the next phase of his career, with a debut album on track to arrive in 2021. Now, he’s given us the first taste of this record by way of new single, ‘Lovelost’. Produced and mixed by Tim Fitz of Middle Kids, Breen plays almost every instrument on this immediate new track (Fitz took on bass duties), which shows exactly why his is a name that has become synonymous with forward-thinking musicianship on the Australian scene.” Tyler Jenke, Tone Def Nov 20
” For listeners coming to Dominic Breen for the first time, ‘Lovelost’ is the perfect introduction to one of Sydney’s most magnetic talents. For those who have been on the journey with Breen since 2018, it reaffirms the consistency of this gifted and prolific songwriter.” Black Of Hearts DEC 20
“The perfect blend of jangle, lived experience vocals, and even a War on Drugs inspired “woo!”. A lightness to some dark times.” Zan Rowe – Double J
“Sydney singer-songwriter Dominic Breen wowed us recently with the release of his new single, Lovelost. The captivating indie tune has received some big love online and been added to rotation on some of Australia’s most influential radio stations. Today we have the joy of getting the first view of the accompanying video.” AAA Backstage Dec 20
“Had this one well and truly planted in the head ever since first playing it. Tim Fitz’s production and pedal steel adds a great flavour. Dominic’s dozy Dylanesque delivery has such a classic feel about it too. Add a dose of longing on top of those melodies and you’ve cooked up one great song” Triple J, Richard Kingsmill, Feb 2021
“Dominic always has such a way with words, space and emotion. He’s got stories to tell and you believe every single word.”
Triple J, Declan Byrne, Feb 2021
“Dom is a singular voice in Sydney – a true artist and songwriter. Every Dom Breen song has its own unique spirit. Lovelost has this howling, frenetic energy, and an inner sensitivity.”

“Equally likely to appeal to fans of Julia Jacklin, DMA’s and Middle Kids as it is to fans of the Go-Betweens, The Triffids or Roy Orbison, ” AROUND THE SOUND, Nov 20
“Dom is doing the antipodean indie thing as well as anyone out atm. This breezy jangle has found that sweet spot between dusty Australiana and UK guitar bands from the ’80s.”
