Mariami and producer To1beats deliver a sweet sound of healing after experiencing manipulation with their latest release, Breath Bitch.
Mariami's airy vocals flutter pleasurably over a hip whining tempo and gentle guitar strings, produced by To1beats.
Breath Bitch paints the picture of an illusive situation filled with lies and mind games, that fails to last.
Mariami releases the deception and reminds herself to >breath<.
"Those guitar noodles at the beginning of the song immediately pulled me in. Sonically, the music felt like a long awaited reward or sigh of relief after a longgggg period of tension or pain. Like rain after a long dry spell.
Like happiness and hope after a global pandemic haha - everything hinged on that emotion" - Mariami.
It's the blending of the calm yet assertiveness for me, creating a palpable balance of ambience and afrobeat,
the two worlds collide without flaw.
"Earlier this year I really started diving deeper into Afromusic, enjoying the beautiful and smooth production.
The natural feeling some of these songs gave me and listening to certain artists like Wizkid, Rayvanny, Spinall to name a few, inspired me to go for a similar direction with this beat. I’m so used to making beats with hard drums, I had to pay closer attention to my sound selection this time. Mariami’s beautiful vocals were the missing piece of the puzzle for this song." - To1beats.
So what do we know about the future for these two? You can expect 2 more singles from Mariami before the year comes to a close, and alot more music cook ups from To1beats.
Until then, all we know is y'all will catch a vibe with this one, and to stay on that vibe follow Mariami and To1beats on IG while you keep Breath Bitch in rotation.
