BREEZE started as a few sketches in the notebook of songwriter, producer, and engineer Josh Korody (BELIEFS / Elk). Their dream-pop sound took form soon after with collaborators and friends Kyle Connolly (Elk) and Shawn Dell (Great Bloomers) joining the band. After a few weeks of rehearsals, the three went into Korody’s Candle Recording Studio in Toronto’s west-end with Josh’s studio partner and producer Leon Taheny (Owen Pallet / Austra / DOOMSQUAD / DUSTED) to record a full length record. Assembling an impressive line up, Breeze has grown to include bassist Dustin Hawthorne (Hot Hot Heat / Islands).
Currently putting the finishing touches on their debut record, Breeze have released “Paradise/Repent” single in digital and cassette tape format (limited to 100 copies) and “Dolls” digital single via Toronto design / boutique label Hand Drawn Dracula.
“Breeze’s dreamy debut cassingle is a siren song from rose-tinted utopia. Running, or dancing, it inspires oscillatory movement, limbs pumping with ecstatic strokes, and a meter that reverberates throughout” ~ WEIRD Canada

“Paradise (in a while)” – Song of the Week (Hartzine)
“extra jangly, à la Real Estate” (Exclaim! Magazine)
“dreamy melodies ~ hazy affairs ~ back porch beers ~ blissed out drives ~ hearts pumping” (Herohill)
“dreamy – almost psychedelic instrumentation ~ music that makes for backseat make-outs” (Plaid Magazine)
“hazy, shimmering guitars that sparkle in the sunshine, warm enough to take the chilly bite out of a late summer night” (Quick Before It Melts)
“dreamweaver Josh Korody opens the perceptual door, and leads us on a stroll through the poppy field. White sneakers, splattered with the romantic muck of teenage nostalgia, disembodied now, tread the bent stems. And as we gaze at them, they become conductors, gorging on static, free floating sole-up atop the interference. Faces smear in your peripherals as your eyelids flicker like bat wings. No one’s smiling, but everyone feels fine.” (WEIRD Canada)
