Song of the Week: Mary Lattimore – “Hold Your Breath”

Experimental ambience that acts as a balm.

Last week was a stressful one in America! While days of tension were released yesterday in a well-earned celebratory display, there’s something still to be said for a soothing song to help calm you in other trying times. And that’s exactly what Mary Lattimore provides with “Hold Your Breath,” an ambient piece of music you can float away on.

The classically-trained harpist knows how to craft an instrumental journey that conjures the same serenity as a day out in the splendor and silence of nature. Deep, droning background synths offer a base on which Lattimore plays reverberating touches of harp notes. It’s a restorative sound of solace that belongs on any relaxing playlist, or to focus in on during uneasy days.

“Hold Your Breath” is out now.
