Breathe Owl Breathe-Across the Loch

The guitar loop on this song has managed to creep itself deep into the crevices of my mind, popping up whenever it feels ready; in fact, this whole song has been on repeat in my brain. "Across the Loch" is a song which manages to perfectly capture every detail of the mood of a single line, "I was afraid of losing you." Its beat is almost haunting, a simple guitar loop on top of layers of other sounds, with a gruff electronic guitar riff every now and then disturbing its tranquility. There is something wholesome about the sound of Breathe Owl Breathe, something that manges to balance being extremely complex and unbelievably simple at the same time. Like Bon Iver's best songs (which plunge even deeper into simplicity), "Across the Loch" sounds as if it were inspired by wilderness, and the the Michigan based trio (made up of Micah Middaugh, Andrea Moreno-Beals, and Trevor Hobbs) have created a song that is impossible not to mellow too, and one that will do its best to take you to a simpler place.
