"Floating on a bed of sweeping, weeping strings and a gentle patter of guitars and piano, ‘Don’t Forget To Breathe’ is breathtakingly elegant and mournful: an air of melancholy oozes from the crystalline cello strings and the layered harmonies floating in the ether. The theme of the song is one of positivity in the face of the vicissitudes of life – the gentle, compassionate message becoming an essential panacea for our times."
"The ambulatory tone and sky scraping melodies evince a touch of Springsteen, but there are tangible echoes of The Go-Betweens and The Apartments that sparkle with an antipodean glow, burnished with imperial majesty of something from Tindersticks. Steve Lane’s songwriting is measured and passionate at the same time, imbued with a longing and intelligence that gives its pop sensibilities a solid grounding and veracity."

Steve Lane's fourth album, 'The Great Imposter' was released worldwide on November the 25th 2022 through Scottish label 'Last Night From Glasgow'.
It went #8 on the UK Vinyl charts, #5 on the Scottish Album Charts and #2 on the UK Indie album Chart Breaker Charts!
"The Great Imposter is a delightful slice of shimmering antipodean guitar pop, unless of course, you're reading this on the other side of the world, in which case it's a glorious slab of homegrown genius!"
Ian Smith - Last Night From Glasgow
"The infectious first single ‘Certainty’ could be an anthem for the era. As coastlines erode and a pandemic re-shapes our ideas of the future – even the near future – Lane celebrates things that endure (‘every breathing leaf… hands deep in soil… the stories of the old ones’) and brings it all home when he concludes, ‘in these uncertain times, you are my certainty’. This beautiful refrain is driven by a rock piano line that would make Ben Folds envious."
