The Breath, 2017
This new track from The Breath, Chilli Salt is a powerfully raw and raucously punchy song that has become a cornerstone of the band's live set.
The song shows a more muscular, riff-driven side to the band with Ríoghnach Connolly's glorious voice soaring over the fabric of Stuart McCallum's distinctive, layered soundworld.
Connolly's songs pour forth from her own life in a torrent of meaning, excavating raw feeling with little in the way of defence. 'Chilli Salt' is about sexual politics, delivered with compelling emotional honesty and a powerful urgency.
Hailing from Manchester, The Breath is guitarist Stuart McCallum and singer Ríoghnach Connolly. Their debut album, Carry Your Kin, was released in July 2016.
