I first saw Breathe Owl Breathe play live when I was in college. I was enamored with their beautiful harmonies and unique performance style. (For instance, at one point the lead singer performed with a snorkeling mask.) I like all of their songs, and “Dogwalkers of the New Age” is my favorite. The simple rhythm, angelic harmonies, and surprising lyrics make this the kind of song I can listen to over and over again without tire. In addition, the idea of cities being alive is one that has stuck with me for when I travel to new cities and lookout over the lights at night.
