The Way You Breathe is a simmering, gorgeously slinky noir-ish ballad. The tender vocal, almost a genteel croon that coos and curls around the melody-rich backing, offers an alternate weapon to the explosive and infectious blues-rock of ‘Where I Want To Be’.
As brother and sister, Thom and Lucy Southern know each other’s strengths and play to them with devastating effect on this, their third release. It acts as another telling stepping-stone in this bright young duo’s intriguing, nascent career.
