According to Vacay, as an artist so much of your creative expression is done in isolation. A lot of the satisfaction comes from the writing process but to be able to take your work to the stage and know that your music and lyrics are resonating with people there’s a whole new level of satisfaction that goes even deeper than just creating on your own. That’s because the whole point of his music is to move people and when he knows that has happened there’s electricity, and a feeling of oneness. When the audience is moved by him, he is in turn moved by them. 'Moving You' a love song to the audience."
BREATHERRR is a post-psych artist based out of Long Beach, CA. By interweaving roots in trip hop, jungle, and industrial with new found explorations of jazz and noise, BREATHERRR's music aims to submerge listeners to a liquid state of ecstasy and catharsis.
BREATHERRR is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist producer Michael Anthony Espinach. Founded in early 2014, BREATHERRR fuses psychedelic noise with new wave jazz and pop for a unique musical experiment. After only a couple of years, BREATHRRR has garnered critical acclaim and success in his hometown of Long Beach.
His most ambitious project to date is the upcoming LP entitled “Almond Noir”. The album touches upon finding strength in vulnerability and tells the story of Espinach’s own battle with substance abuse. “This album points to the cultivation and letting go of certain relationships. Building and destroying romantic relationships, cultivating and abstaining from my chemical relationships, and hiding from and truly discovering the relationship with my self.”
“Almond Noir” begins with the leading single Chantrieri which fuses electronic beats with heavy bass and new-wave vocals. Chantieri is experimental yet with a pop sensibility rarely found in music today. In the second track Tar, BREATHRRR brilliantly fuses industrial beats and dark wave influenced lyricism for what can be described as a beautiful yet poignantly haunting musical psychedelic trip.
“Almond Noir” is set for release November 11th worldwide.
Party like a Fireman" is a nonstop sonic journey of madness spanning just over an hour, with an overall beat driven, industrial, and darker ambient tone than some of our previous releases. That's not to say it's all doom and gloom. There are serval upbeat and comical moments, but they all eventually veer into an uncomfortable waking dream state.

Separate Grooves (release date Nov. 2) is on the rock end with pretty singing, vintage keys inspired, and 90s -ish sounding distorted guitars (and a couple acoustic thrown in).
Some themes explored on the album besides loss/love (Miss Invisible, Separate Grooves, Working for You) - airline travel (TSA Patdown), the affordable housing crisis (Tenement Cove), and self-funded artists (Wanting In).
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
