Yam Bakshi – “Deep Breathing”


“Deep Breathing” is a stirring rock success from Yam Bakshi, a musician from Tel Aviv. The beginnings unfold patiently, from creaking guitar arpeggios and spacious vocals into a bustling vibrancy. A vocal escalation at the one-minute mark exudes an entrancingly dark allure, reminiscent of A Perfect Circle. A graceful guitar arpeggio builds to a more effervescent climax past the two-minute turn. The final minute presents a resonating melding of Bakshi’s now-impassioned vocals and trickling guitar-laden atmospherics, putting a satiating bow on this powerful rocker.

The captivating track also releases alongside a music video, which represents Bakshi’s directorial debut.

This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2022’ Spotify playlist.
