Breathe Owl Breathe

Passage of Pegasus

It looks like Breathe Owl Breathe have finally decided to grow up. Here, on album number six, the Michigan-based trio have replaced the idiosyncrasies of past records with a tonal consistency that runs throughout these 10 folk-pop strains. This change of tack creates a perfect platform for the rich, emotive baritone of Micah Middaugh to thrive. Each songin particular “Ferns Move” and the gorgeous “Two Moths”are fraught, tender tearjerkers that swoop through a fug of pert percussion and grievous strings. And while it may not be enough to win over new fans, this refreshed approach will see Breathe Owl Breathe age well with the ones they’ve already got. (
