Sometimes it's difficult to feel emotionally connected to electronic music. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that acoustic instruments, which pulse and breathe with the human who plays it, don't often play as big of a role as the other foundations on which contemporary electronic music is built on.
24 year-old Dublin-native EMBRZ has a knack for creating melodically-charged, downtempo music which, at its core, is entwined around central concepts that make you "feel" something. His signature style of using common dance music elements paired with a clever use of shimmery electronic synths acknowledge his genre while bringing out the "human" in electronic music.
Today, EMBRZ releases his new original single, "Breathe" via MFN / Ultra Music. The track opens with a simple, pondering melody played on the guitar, accompanying husky male vocals. Before long, the guitar melody matures into a harder-sounding synth, and the track blossoms into a well-rounded mellow dance track guided by guitar plucks and a solid dance beat to give it more motion. You can almost hear the breath before each shift in melodic theme-- a pleasant, ghost-like sensation that may remind listeners of that anticipatory breath a violinist takes before launching into the hardest part of their solo.
In summary, "Breathe" continues to show listeners the impressive skills of EMBRZ in truly creating his own unique space in electronic music, a genre littered with those who aim to impress with effects but are lacking in sentiment.
