Breathe Owl Breathe

 

continued

Moreno-Beals offers accompanying vocals, and the contrast between her high-pitched voice and Middaugh's couldn't be much greater. Their vocals interlock in interesting ways, too. Sometimes they concurrently sing completely different things, and other times they trade off lyrics. Moreno-Beals also frequently uses her voice as an instrument instead of singing words. Her cello is the pivotal instrument of the band, but she also plays banjo on a few songs. Hobbs adds drums, marimba, piano, and chimes in with a bit of vocal assistance as well. Minimalist and earthy in sound, but complicated in structure, Breathe Owl Breathe's music allows their artistic quirkiness to shine through.    (end of article)
