Long Beach post-psych artist BREATHERRR (Michael Anthony Espinach) has been creating music since early 2014, gaining massive traction in his hometown. His biggest piece to note is his upcoming LP Almond Noir, which tells his own personal story of life with substance abuse. We have the exclusive premiere of his single off that LP, “Chantrieri”, right here.
Breathy vocals, interesting percussion, and sound effects hold the song together like glue. The song documents specific details, while bringing attention to otherwise unnoticed attributes like the flush of a face and freckles. He’s painting a very vivid picture, and it’s swarming around us in what we could only describe as a psychedelic cage.
Says BREATHERRR of the track, “‘Chantrieri’ is a mission statement of the themes and aesthetic of Almond Noir. Its mood: dark but cathartic; structure: chaotic though melodic; words: reflective and erotic; an alchemical approach to pop styling, while implementing the post genre psychedelia I have come to embody and voice.”
Almond Noir is set for release November 11th worldwide.
