breathe. – [KONG]

I’m a firm believer in the idea that hearing a song at the right time is just as important as the sound of the song itself, in some cases. There are countless songs that I haven’t liked upon my first few listens but ended up loving once they “clicked,” and similarly, there are plenty of songs that have clicked right away thanks to the right timing and the right listening experience. One song that clicked right off the bat for me is “breathe.” by an artist named KONG.

Soulful and hypnotic as can be, I clicked play on “breathe.” earlier this morning, and upon listening to the first few seconds, I knew that this one had fallen perfectly into place. Between the soothing sound of the instrumental to KONG’s dense, reflective lyricism, this track seemingly helped me escape from the stresses of the day throughout its entire duration. Few songs that I’ve heard recently feel as refreshing as this one, and most notable is the fact that the vocals and the production don’t feel as though they’re layered in any way — rather, these elements of the song come together as one, making for an enjoyable and even therapeutic listen in the process.

That said, be sure to check out “breathe.” for yourself at the link below and let us know what you think in the comments!
