Breathe Me was the first Sia song I discovered, years ago. The bass groove that releases on the 3, the orchestral movements, the added layers--they combine for a lift that carries me away. I love the decision to keep the track playing after the final vocals to let the instrumentation ruminate for a minute. The cello movement in this final section resonates with the firing synapses in my brain, as if organizing them to the beat and creating order in my mind. This has always been my favorite Sia song, and it speaks to her artistry. She speaks the language of music, and this song speaks to my soul.
