I find it beautiful how a song written from a place of frustration can calm the listeners and put a huge smile on their face. I looked like a kid in the candy store listening to 'Breathe', it really is something to behold.
At such a young age, Taylors talents have caught the eye of so many (89k on Instagram is no mean feat) and she has been compared to worldwide artists such as Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato and Kelly Clarkson and it isn't hard to understand why. With a extraordinary vocal range, matched by a catchy beat and relatable lyrics, Taylor has hit the nail on the head and the stars are the limit.
The first lyric of the song has you hooked immediately, "I hold my breath for a better day, will you dive in if I sufficate." The drum beat supporting this indie-pop masterpiece create a lovely ambience, along with a wavy bass.
Ultimately, this song is a feel-good, upbeat pop tune you can picture during the films and series. Picture the slow-motion party compilation of teens having a fantastic time at a house-party, now put this song behind that - fits perfectly.
Taylor Castro will go a long way! Stream 'Breathe' below.
