Young Bull is a forward-thinking hip hop and R&B trio comprised of founding members Mique and Fox Peck, along with rapper/singer Christian Sinclair.
Based in Durham, North Carolina, they are rooted in a distinctively Southern sound—fusing trap and old-school soul influences into a rich, modern sound. With over 1,000,000 plays on Spotify alone in the last year, a slew of successful festival, college, and club shows, and heavy critical acclaim, YB is making moves in the music world.
Backed by some of the funkiest musicians in the country, Young Bull has performed up and down the East Coast and continues to tour, record new music, and collaborate with fellow artists.
Breathers challenge perceptions of synth-pop on their new album Designed to Break. Each song is a refreshingly honest dive into the modern human psyche balanced with vibrant synth lines that capture the imagination and drip like dew into our parched subconscious. Despite the pop moniker, Breathers defy categorization, drawing inspiration from the Sophisti-pop movement and the cryptic poetry of Steely Dan. Even the album title is multi-faceted, referencing both the analog gear that Breathers use to craft their sound and the disposable nature of modern technology. On Designed to Break, Breathers have jettisoned everything that doesn't shimmer and fused what remains into a rejuvenating cosmic polyphony. Never has a synth record felt so intrinsically human. Designed to Break is out 8/21 on LP/Digital via Irrelevant Music.
