Pale Blue: “Breathe”

Elizabeth Wight and Mike Simonetti’s Pale Blue project makes a welcome return with their new EP, entitled “Breathe”, a finely crafted five-tracker which comes with two exceptional remixes of the title track by the equally unstoppable NYC veteran Lauren Flax and NYC’s Olive. Here, we have for you the record’s first single “Breathe”. Musically it’s ageless, rolling, harmonic acid house. Lyrically it’s an acute portrait of an abusive relationship where one feels stuck – be it through financial necessity or trauma bonding in a violent, emotionally abusive or dysfunctional relationship. Watch the lyric video for the track above.

The “Breathe” EP arrives on March 20th on Mike Simonetti’s 2MR imprint. Pre-order it here.
