Musically, "Dandelion" was the last song to be written for the album and delves a bit into their love for the '80s sound wise," one-half the duo, Bob DiBari, explains. "The drums sounds come from the Roland 707 and most of the synth sounds stem from classic '80s keyboards. Lyrically, the song deals with a couple that has started to grow apart as tastes and interest change. "
Vocally, "Dandelion" was an attempt to have a melody pour out in the same way the prose short story does to match storytelling in the lyrics.
Bob DiBari composes the band’s atmospheric soundscapes. Chris Cleary provides the vocals. Together they create the band’s intricate arrangements and bring sincerity and depth of feeling to their lyrics. Two and a half years after their last EP Under the Brilliant Lights, the band are ready to release Hailey, It Happens, their second full-length. Recorded during time stolen between full-time jobs as an accountant and a teacher, the record chronicles 36 consequential months in the duo’s lives.

The tune is about the fate of a relationship being questioned, and ultimately relinquished. The initial exuberance of anthemic synths were composed while immersed in loving partnerships, but the forlorn lyrics and wounded harmonies arose from the fallout of two long-term relationships. The song is at an emotional crux, on the precipice of separation and acceptance. In the end, "Up To You" offers a glimmer of hope in the wake of loss.
Musically, "Up To You" picks up the pace from Saxsyndrum 's last single "Dawn Breaks" — AP Bergeron delivers crisp vocals mixed over Switchenko’s meandering sax and Schofield’s thick beat. On this release, Saxsyndrum find themselves continuing to toy with pop idioms that are laced with their intrinsic experimental-electronic origins. On the B-side, the dub version takes the core sentiment, imbued by drum & bass, and stretches out reversed melodies and lyrical fragments with tape delay to suspend moments in total free-fall.
"Up To You" will be released on 7” vinyl by Oh Hi, featuring the single and dub versions, with artwork by Danica Olders.

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.
