Mickey Kojak is back with another banger in ‘Save Your Breath’
‘Save Your Breath’ is the latest track from Australian artist Mickey Kojak, and marks one of his first tracks since coming out of a tour last year, playing festivals and clubs all over, in between being one half of indie act The Tapes. Lucky for us, Mickey has made a return to his solo music career with his first track of 2017, and while we’re a fan of The Tapes, we’re BIG fans of this track.
The cohesiveness of the production can’t be understated. Kojak has added so many layers and blends them all flawlessly. Whether it’s the soft synth hits above the bassline or the sweeping sounds that mark the transitions, nothing feels out of place and it creates a beautiful atmosphere to allow his voice to shine.
The vocals on this track fit in perfectly with the beat, and the vocal delivery is powerful. It doesn’t matter whether the beat is stripped back like in the introduction, or busy like in its hooks, Mickey’s vocals blend in and take the track to a whole other level.
‘Save Your Breath’ is a standout track and a perfect return to form for Mickey Kojak. We’ve become big fans of him here at Purple Sneakers, so we hope to hear more of Mickey really soon.
