Little One (live at the Minack)

The Breath

‘Little One’ is taken from The Breath’s third studio album Land of My Other. The video was filmed on the cliff near the Minack Theatre, in Cornwall by the Henwyn Collective. Edited by Ric Jones. Audio recorded and mixed by Biff Roxby.

The song is highly personal to singer Ríoghnach Connolly, written when on the cusp of motherhood. A song about loss suffered, fear of the future and, ultimately, unbridled joy, “It’s about driving back from gigs late at night and having a cry while holding tight to the steering wheel,” she says. Then smiles: “It turns out we’re not raising a wallflower, which is great.” This ode to the child to come finds a perfect foil in the music’s soothing beauty, all textural guitar and hand-clapped rhythm;

“Lay down with me my little one,
I have you now the day is done”

The album, Land of My Other is ten original tracks of raw, gorgeous, acoustic-minded music. Songs that tell stories in ways that soothe, stir, exalt, and touch emotional chords that will bring tears, of lamenting joy, to your eyes.
