‘Breathe’ gives listeners a personal insight into the mind of an overthinker longing for a sense of calm and reassurance. The likable tune contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of Greta Issac, Mimi Webb, Griff, and Julia Michaels. Also, “Breathe” possesses vibrant instrumentation flavored with a contemporary pop aroma. Furthermore, the song serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear on Hemes’s upcoming debut EP, entitled, “Matters of the Mind,” available late in 2021. The project is funded by BBC Horizons Wales Launchpad scheme and Help Musicians Do it Differently scheme.

“You know it’s hard to breathe underwater.”

“I wanted ‘Breathe’ to capture the feeling of needing that one person in your life who can relieve your anxieties. For me, it’s my mum. I finished the song during the pandemic because it was the longest time that I had ever been away from her. Through tough times, I really wished that I could just drive to see her, and that’s how ‘Breathe’ was born. I wanted the track to feel relatable so that people can think of whoever makes them feel better. Whether it’s a family member, a lover, or a friend.” – Hemes explained

Hemes was born to Arabic parents. Her love for music and songwriting stems from being raised around a mix of Western and Middle Eastern music. She takes inspiration from personal experiences of growing up, mental health, and self-discovery.
