Trixie Whitley-Breath You In My Sleep

Never relying on her lineage, Trixie set out to craft a unique personal and artistic identity. She started playing drums when she was ten. At age eleven she became the youngest resident DJ in Belgium, spinning underground electronica, free jazz, ambient instrumentals and hip-hop at raves and modern art museums. By her early teens she was touring with several avant-garde theater and dance collectives throughout Europe. During this time she developed an affinity for punk rock’s nonconformist and D.I.Y. ethics, which permeated her fearless genre-bending and daring life choices. Trixie’s prismatic artistry reflects electronica, R&B, the vulnerable ethos of singer-songwriters, and the unapologetic individuality of punk rock. Although her previous effort reflects her broad tastes, it is with her latest release that she creates a transcendent musical miscellany. She said: “I wanted to make people think and feel something honest and emotionally complex in my music that comes from being fully present in the creative moment.” On Vogue she was asked about her new track "Breath You In My Dreams" “That title was a line that came to me during a dream I woke up from and wrote down in the middle of the night,” says Whitley. The lyrics, filtered through her deep, soulful voice express a heartbreaking longing, which is accentuated in the video by director Matthu Placek’s surreal use of undulating light and slowed-down action, an approach that Whitley says she immediately responded to.






Trixie Whitley-Breath You In My Sleep

I could move mountains
Sail away
Only cause
Ive got this much faith
This love
Is alive
But im crying
And lonely these nights
Silver shadows
Walking by my side
Silver shadows
Walking by our side
But i aint coming
I aint coming home tonight
I breathe you in my
I breathe you in my dreams

Ill breathe you in my dreams
I breathe you
I breathe you in my dreams
I breathe you
Ill breathe you in my dreams
I breathe you
I breathe you in my dreams

I cant taste our soil
Through the rains of your eyes
You shout
It conflicts with
With the oceans of my
Of my pride

Silver shadows
Walking by my side
Silver shadows
Walking by my side

But I aint coming home
I aint coming home tonight

But I breathe you in my dreams
I breathe you
Ill breathe you in my dreams
I breathe you
Ill breathe you in my dreams
I breathe you
Ill breathe you in my dreams
