Originally serving as a b-side to debut single Go, Breathe is trademark Delilah. Smoky, soulful vocals, all angelic and light like the touch of the softest feather. Against a backing track that’s teasingly minimal, Delilah purrs away, those gorgeous string sections resurfacing from her excellent Love You So to lend Breathe an air of retro-tinged class. We were gutted when Love You So failed to chart, Delilah’s vocals are too good not to be afforded a mass audience, and her recent 2 – 4 am mixtape was phenomenal. And Breathe wins us over just the same – it’s achingly beautiful.
Breathe is released on the 30th April.
