The Buckleys Release Emotional Ballad “Breathe”
The new soul-stirring track comes nestled in an equally emotive video that showcases a haunting and impassioned side of the band’s pop Americana trademark which they call “hippie country.”
“Breathe” was recorded and co-written by Sarah Buckley and two times Grammy winning producer and engineer Chad Carlson, whose credits include Taylor Swift, Jewel and the Hunger Games soundtrack.
"‘Breathe’ is our musical prayer to the world," explains The Buckleys singer Sarah Buckley. "I wrote this last year at the time when our country was experiencing horrific bushfires. It’s a message of strength, vulnerability, hurt, hope and moving forward. I find myself remembering these lyrics in moments where I just need to stop, close my eyes, listen to the sounds of world around me and just breathe."
Following their worldwide debut with the fun and effervescent "Money" single and video which has today taken the #1 spot on the Australian Country Music radio charts, the emotionally vulnerable ballad hopes to help people connect and find hope in our current times.
The release of “Breathe,” follows their groundbreaking world virtual tour where the band became one of the first to capture a global audience and achieved a ‘virtual reach’ of more than 4 million. Presented by Live Nation, the world virtual tour was developed in conjunction with Live Nation and the band’s record label, Petrol Records and US label, UMe. Performing individually curated shows for specific regions of the U.S. (and later, the world) which were streamed through Live Nation and House of Blues’ local affiliates as well as the newly launched Live From Home platform, the rising hippie country siblings were able to recreate the personalized “live” experience during a time of social distancing.
The band kicks off their second run of shows with a stop in India. Their virtual performance in India begins at 8pm (IST) /7:00 am (PDT) live on BookMyShow and its official Facebook handle. In case you miss it, their performance will be available after on the Buckleys channel.
“India has such a rich culture of music and art; we are excited that through technology we can connect with you from all the way here in Australia. We can’t wait,” said The Buckleys ahead of their India show.
