     Tiny Moving Parts have always been a vehicle for catharsis and that’s nothing new on ‘breathe’. The fifth full-length by the Benson, Minnesota, trio sees vocalist/guitarist Dylan Mattheisen and his cousins, brothers Matt (bass) and Billy (drums) Chevalier, tackle issues such as mental health, anxiety and mortality while also expanding their sound.
     Recorded with longtime collaborator Greg Lindholm and established pop producer John Fields (Jimmy Eat World, Goo Goo Dolls, All Time Low), ‘breathe’ is a valuable reminder that we’re all in this together, channelled through the band’s trademark blend of math rock, pop punk and emo, albeit with a few new musical tricks (including some electronic flourishes and a banjo).
     More than just a collection of songs, ‘breathe’ serves as an important emotional crutch. It’s the friend we all need at our darkest times. It’s the sound of a band coming to terms with their own mortality, their own anxieties, their own selfdoubts. And it’s a reminder that, as long as there are songs sung back as if our lives depend on them, we are never alone.
     For fans of Sorority Noise, The Hotelier, Foxing.
