Josh Dent, Phil Yochum and Lucas Svevo make up the Breathers side of the group Kin Sullivan & The Breathe In Breathe Out. Sullivan was born in Baltimore, MD but lives in Nashville, TN. Svevo is from Oklahoma, Yochum is from Texas and Dent is from Florida. The band is still at their developmental stages. Therefore, with time, the band could morph into something completely different. Currently, their sound is a hybrid of alternative, indie, folk and at times blues music.
The band credits Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, among others, as their musical influences. Kin Sullivan & The Breathe In Breathe Out intended to create an intimate listening experience with their EP In Feel. To accomplish this, Sullivan made these tracks organically. He relied more on momentary inspiration than following set patterns and themes. In Feel packs a lot of emotion into the five-track disc. This is mainly because of Sullivan’s mesmerizing vocals. His voice is a legend in the making.
Each track on In Feel has interpretive, poetic lyrics. This creates personal reflection for listeners. Sullivan’s song “She Listens to Love Songs” drips with raw emotions. “The Fall Bird Song” has the best hook, instrumentals, voice and lyrics. It almost makes you hum along. “Fever Dreams” has a 90s alternative tone to it. The randomization of these songs’ French phrases gives In Feel a unique, unexpected twist.
Having a clear theme could have given In Feel more meaning because it feels a little directionless. I believe thematic albums connect better with the general public. However, I understand Sullivan and his band’s purpose so it’s not a huge problem. It does not defer from the strengths of In Feel. And there are many strengths to it.
