The World Breathes is a track that starts with a gentle acoustic guitar riff that quickly explodes into a folk-indie rock that’s akin to the ’90s/’00s sound of Travis, Crowded House and Embrace. The band also cite The Smiths and Kate Bush among their influences and you can certainly here them in their sound. The track has an uplifting feel, full of natural imagery in the lyrics and emotional climaxes. It’s all quite beautiful.

Victoria Sponge are planning a UK tour for later in the year, let’s hope they stop by our neighbourhood. You can check out The World Breathes below.
