Death In Texas deliver 11 musical delights courtesy of their debut album Pause Between Breaths

Ruth Searle met Kane Power in New Zealand during 2004, whilst they were both studying for music degrees.

A few years later they started working together musically, where they combined Ruth's piano skills and Kane's interest in hardcore and metal.

The duo then relocated to London in 2009 and this was when Death In Texas were born.

Two years down the line and they released their debut EP - We Will Implode.

Following many gigs around the UK and changes in their line up, specifically the bass player they recorded a four track EP - Pluck.

Ruth and Kane tied the knot and took the time to refine their sound to something more relaxed, relying on Radiohead and Bat For Lashes as inspiration.

June 2014 saw the duo venture into the studio to begin recording their debut album and the 27th of November sees them unveil this album as they release Pause Between Breaths for the whole world to listen to.

With a similar sound to Marbl, Pause Between Breaths delivers us 11 musically unique gems.

Music is chock full of synth beats and Ruth's captivating vocals, this track sets the ambiance for the rest of the album as it's something special.

A Body features a catchy instrumental hook which goes nicely alongside the melodic tones of the piano and Ruth's first class performance.

In places Shards features a slower tempo which gives it more of a ballad feel and it concludes with a haunting sequence.

Waves yet again delivers on the instrumental and vocal front, plus it also entertains us with powerful and moving lyrics.

Things Your Eyes Have Seen's lyrics make us wonder what see as life passes us by whilst the song dazzles us with a catchy melody.

Laniakea kicks off which powerful instrumentals, which sets the mood for the rest of the song.

Something New showcases Ruth's vocal range from beautiful harmonies to the powerful way in which she performs the lyrics.

Synthesised Happiness is another haunting number, thanks to the piano arrangement and vocals.

Weighted Light is simply outstanding with a delightful mix of instrumentals and Ruth's sublime vocals.

Sails is a rocktastic belter of a tune.

The album closes with a laid-back number which shares the same title as the album and I couldn't think of a better way to finish off the album.
