This week from monday through thursday was really fast-paced and hectic for me. And while I was enjoying it, it was only yesterday I found out that today was a god-sent holiday! It’s as if life was telling me: just pause for a sec, and breathe.
Very few people take a classic original and make it better. Like Steve Jobs with some of the things he did at Apple that changed our lives. I’m not saying New Navy is the Steve Jobs of music. But what they did to Télépopmusik’s original classic is pretty remarkable.
Stripping the original of all the electronic bits and spicing it with acoustic bliss on the musical side; and on the vocal part giving it a little more nostalgia and raw emotion is where they set this cover apart. But don’t worry, the more organically acoustic nostalgia injection doesn’t mean it’s downtempo or super sad. With help from claps and fast-paced drum-work it manages to be quite dynamic. In fact, it’s sort of like a roller-coaster ride. Take a listen and you’ll understand what I mean.
I don’t like it when people mess with perfect songs like Breathe but this is something else worth sharing with all of you. Would love to know your thoughts in the comments.
Have a great weekend, and remember to just breathe.
