Justin Thomas’ latest Americana Country single “Just Let Me Breathe” is a metaphorical masterpiece. After a three-year stint in releases, the American artist found inspiration in injustice. The incident of George Floyd’s death was used to illustrate the suffocating impact of systematic racial oppression.
Naturally, Just Let Me Breathe had a compassion-invoking resounding effect. Yes, the slightly psychedelically infused, angular guitar licks were absorbing and awe-inspiring. Yet, Justin Thomas’ compelling vocal style along with their ability to guide you into a contemplative empathetic state is why you’ll never forget Just Let Me Breathe.
We hope to hear plenty more from Justin Thomas in 2020 and beyond. Tracks such as Just Let Me Breathe are worth their weight in aural gold.
Just Let Me Breathe is available to stream via Soundcloud.
