Sound & Vision <br> with SHRINK

SHRINK is the musical moniker of British/ German artist and producer, Sam Breathwick, who releases his much-anticipated self-titled debut EP.

Coming off the back of high praise for singles Drowning  and Eraser, which showcase Breathwick’s inventive production and shape-shifting songwriting, the EP both consolidates and confounds expectations with a masterful combination of spark and substance throughout.

Breathwick spoke to Secret Meeting about some of his favourite sounds and sources of inspiration…

Three albums I love

Robert Wyatt – Rock Bottom

I love the effortless, train of thought flow to this album.

Angel Olsen – All Mirrors

So rich and well detailed; I especially love the string arrangements on some of the songs.

Perfume Genius – No Shape

The production and songwriting feel like they compliment each other really well, and reaches out really far.

One film I love

The Devil  and Daniel Johnston

I found this was a good honest presentation of how mental health impacted his career, and how he lived with psychosis.

One book I love

Haruki Murakami – Norwegian Wood

I’m currently reading A Wild Sheep Chase by him as well. I find his writing style really enjoyable as it’s succinct and honest. I also found Norwegian Wood interesting as it addressed mental health back when it was still  a taboo topic.

One song that’s important

1010 Benja SL – Wind Up Space

The production and flow of this song really stood out to me. I think it also highlights how amazing his voice is. One of my favourite songs.
