Liner notes

A goosebumps-inducing slice of pop melancholia, that has Ríoghnach Connolly‘s beautiful vocal front and centre within Stuart McCallum‘s poignant and melodic soundscape. If you liked the songs from their debut album Carry Your Kin, then this will not disappoint.

  • Carry Your Kin

    The Breath

    Released 07 July 2016

    Born out of Manchester's fertile music scene The Breath mix Irish folk influences with mesmerizing guitar riffs, anthemic themes and powerful hooks. In turns hypnotic, lush, powerfully raw and raucously punchy, their songs entrance, uplift and break your heart as The Breath conjure a kaleidoscope of sound that perfectly frames Connolly's raw songs and soul cleansing vocals.
  • Chilli Salt

    The Breath

    Released 11 May 2017

    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.
