Respire - Demonstration

Respire create some very slow, moody soundscapes with a great melodic sensibility to them.  The sound seems to be two-fold; at times it's light with clean guitar and low speaking vocals, while other times it's heavy, loud and screaming with anger.

It's something similar to mixing Explosions in the Sky with Buried Inside.  The unique use of trumpet and glockenspiel add some extra layers that are pulled off very well.

The only downside here is the production quality is not exactly at it's peak.  Hearing these songs with a larger production quality would probably be massive and really open up the intracacies of the songs.  Hopefully we'll see something like this in the future.  For now though, The band has definitely done a good job with the production at their disposal.

Listen to it here.
