Breathe b/w Sorry
Big Crown is proud to present the second 45 from the darling dears of Rialto, California, Brainstory. We dropped their debut single on the label back in March and it instantly caught on with all the sweet soul fans. This new 7” showcases the funkier, jazzier but equally soulful side of Brainstory. Their debut album Buck, produced entirely by Leon Michels, is due out in October of 2019.
The A side, “Breathe,” takes a page out of the Shuggie Otis playbook and then flips the script with some stoned out, west coast swag. In the words of Kevin, Brainstory’s lead chanteur, “Breathe is a song about letting go of the emotional baggage of our lives in order to become who we truly are. Before this new journey can happen we’ve got to step back and take a breath. Relax. Use the power of this simple act to become your higher self.”
Side B, “Sorry,” keeps on with the same swagger as “Breathe,” but finds brother and bass player extraordinaire, Tony, taking over the vocal duties. In his words, “Sorry is an expression of the truth in a relationship that has ran its course. Nobody wants to say it but eventually this truth prevails and becomes undeniable.”
