Hajk “Breathe”

This is one big fat pop song. Things start gently, minimally even, and then explode into technicolor once the gigantic and fabulously ascending chorus hits, all fat synths and horn sounds and Sigrid Aase’s soaring voice. It’s all about believing in something  intensely, getting overwhelmed by it, maybe realizing that belief is misguided then just stopping the brain train for a bit, taking a beat, and letting your heart rest ( or as Kate Bush simply put in in her own “Breathing”, out, in, out, in). “Breathe” features on the band’s forthcoming second album and they say while this track serves as a centerpiece, the whole lp will exult the actual spiritual and mental need to breathe and that yes, actual breathing sounds will be woven throughout the entire thing. Gonna be a good one.
