Vazz

Breath

A minimal wave pearl from mid-’80s Glasgow, Vazz’s “Breath” appeared briefly in 1985 on Cathexis Recordings. Copies of the 45 were distributed with Spanish religious postcards, hinting at a penchant for divinity in the song’s repetitive chanting. Singer Anna Howson’s ethereal refrain builds a cascading texture over a grounding drum machine, keeping the song from drifting into space.
