The Breath release digital EP, Acoustic

Recorded in the Big Room at Real World Studios, The Breath's new EP features acoustic interpretations of four tracks from their debut album 'Carry Your Kin'. Stuart McCallum's stripped back guitar beautifully frames Ríoghnach Connolly's moving vocals - at times heartbreakingly sad, always deeply moving.

Born out of Manchester’s fertile music scene, The Breath mix Irish folk influences with mesmerizing guitar riffs, anthemic themes and powerful hooks. Connolly’s soulful vocals are interwoven into the electronic fabric of McCallum’s distinctive soundworld. In turns hypnotic, lush, powerfully raw and raucously punchy, their songs entrance, uplift and break your heart as they conjure a kaleidoscope of sound that perfectly frames Connolly’s raw songs and soul cleansing vocals.

The band have a handful of live dates coming up over the next couple of months, including a headline show Rich Mix, London.
