On his third physical solo release, the 3-song single ‚Rebreather‘, Daniel Becker – known as singer and main songwriter in Duct Hearts and Wishes on a Plane – lyrically spans an arch from seeking emotional independence to wanting the warmth of companionship after and in times of isolation.
In a way it can be seen as a quest for balance between separation and independence, a balance rarely stable, always demanding constant adaption.
listen to the record:
Musically you get what most mid 90s post-hardcore bands would’ve sounded like had electricity been turned off and an acoustic guitar been at hand. Songs stripped to down to their soul, a few guitar strums and picks and a voice trying to put into words what needs to be said. An introvert all by himself, singing to a campfire. Yet, you are invited to sit down and have a drink, knowing whatever it is you are feeling, you are not alone.
