about

“Investment or Distraction ... what’s the price of passion?”

Michael Anthony Espinach, aka BREATHERRR, asks on his third record, FEAR FLORA. The album, several years in the making, is a reflection on comfort, burnout, and acceptance. It is the artist’s most vulnerable work to date, expanding upon 2014's fresh faced RESIN BALLET, and the anxious noise pop of 2016's ALMOND NOIR. From the reclusive Post-Dub of opener COUCH, the Black Metal laced Synth Pop of UNICORN, to the majestically warm Psychedelic Classical of COCOON, FEAR FLORA will take listeners to their own dark wonderlands.

Starting as a solo project in late 2013, FEAR FLORA is the first true foray into collaboration for BREATHERRR. As of 2019, BREATHERRR has expanded in lineup to include J.P. Bendzinski (Crystal Antlers), Joel Jasper (DRUGS) and Tyler Lindgren (Holophrase, Goblincock).

BREATHERRR has shared the stage with bands such as: HEALTH (Loma Vista Recordings), Youth Code (Dais Records), Pictureplane, and Haunted Summer
