For most parts of 2022, The Whythouse had just been offering certified bangers that have been on heavy rotation everywhere; this urban collective that has been known for its eclectic sound design, and you can always expect the unexpected from them! The Whythouse haven’t taken the slow road when it comes to urban pop and country music, but instead have ruthlessly spent hours upon hours taking their sound and style right where it needs to be: at the top of the food chain and in the playlists of key industry players, ardent fans, and fierce critics alike!
With lyrics as graceful and compassionate as the ones found in “Breathe,” a very particular type of vocal presence is needed in order to really bring out the empathetic nuance and emotional qualities about mental health, and I’m beyond glad that the lead male vocalist does an exceptional job of injecting the lyrics with the appropriate benignancy they deserve.
With an elegant approach to both dynamics and phrasing, The Whythouse brings a certain distillation and sense of an understated reassuring that not only heightens the tune’s emotional nature but really helps capture the specific feelings of mental-health issues, particularly with that catchy repeated phrase of “I just need to breathe” that stays with its listener outside of this track!
The arrangement in “Breathe” is quite simply outstanding and makes superb use of its varied instrumentation and intricate layering, giving listeners a piece of craft that offers a great deal in the sense of tonal diversity and that engaging melodic and rhythmic interplay. The country-inspired acoustic blends gracefully with the modern pop stylings to fashion an ineffably beautiful soundscape that cannot be denied by its listener!
No matter the type of genre you subscribe to, there is just something about “Breathe” that will appeal to your senses one way or another, and soon enough, you will find yourself smitten just like the rest of us.
The proceeds from “Breathe” will actually go to mental health awareness and suicide prevention services.
