EP Review: Breathe EP

Title:  Breathe EP (BandCamp)
Artist:  Shawn Reidy (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, BandCamp)

Norman, OK’s Shawn Reidy has put together an excellent five-song EP (six if you count the hidden track) of understated acoustic indie rock/folk in Breathe.  These songs are simple and filled with the desperate emotional highs and lows of relationships and love.  The recording of the EP is very lo-fi and at times the vocals wander a bit but that only adds to the charm of this release.  These songs are so incredibly emotionally raw that you can’t help but get swept up in the feelings of the songs.  Reidy is obviously a very talented songwriter and has a ton of potential.
