“Breathe For Me” is the new single from Milan-based folk rock band The Ghibertins, to be released on 26th May via Mob Sound Records.The Ghibertins’ debut single “Round Trip” remained in the Italian iTunes Top 10 Chart for Emerging Artists for 5 weeks. In 2016, the band performed at the Milan Design Week Exhibition and the Murmur of Art Gallery Event.
In February 2017, The Ghibertins recorded the 11-track album “The Less I Know The Better” at MOB Sound Studio, experimenting with a fuller band sound while retaining the minimalist acoustic guitar origins of their previous work, and using the guitar case percussively to reflect the style and technique used during live performances.
Drawing influences from a wide range of artists, including John Mayer, Mumford & Sons, Ben Harper, Amos Lee, Father John Misty, Pearl Jam, Ryan Adams, Paul Simon, the single “Breathe For Me” is a throbbing and honest alternative rock offering. The track opens with a soulful vocal gently clothed with the barest guitar and piano accompaniment, launching without delay into a lush string arrangement, through which Hofmann’s passionate vocal comes through clearly. By the final chorus, “Breathe For Me” is pulsating with a choppy indie dancefloor drum beat. The track’s power lies in its simplicity and raw edge, and in “Breathe For Me” we have an ultimately uplifting new addition to the world of alternative rock.
Expect impending updates about The Ghibertins and their exciting new album “The Less I Know the Better” set for release later this year.
