Fresh Breath releases ‘When We First Met’ and announces cross-country tour
Canadian singer-songwriter duo Fresh Breath takes a stroll down memory lane in an autobiographical tale of love and excitement called “When We First Met.”
The latest single off their dazzling EP, How Did I Get Here, “When We First Met” is part of the collection of six original tracks with hints of creative influence from artists like the Allman Brothers Band and Alanis Morissette.
The single came together as a regular love song at first but was quickly repurposed to tell the true story of how this married singer-songwriting duo first met. The idea dawned on Katie Pascoe, one half of Fresh Breath, as she was listening to Paul Simon one day; she began to hum the melody into her voice memos app and decided it was the perfect song to talk about the origin story of her and her husband, the other half of Fresh Breath, Josh Pascoe.
“When We First Met” was recorded under the direction of producer Brett Humber in Kingsville, ON at Sound Foundry Studios. The song’s release also celebrates the accompanying official music video that features Katie Pascoe reminiscing and recalling the good times over the years while flipping through a photo album in their home. Refined pop guitars and a catchy percussive rhythm feature prominently on “When We First Met” and complement the story of emotional discovery conveyed in the song’s message.
Katie and Josh Pascoe were not far out of high school and moved within similar friends groups when they began dating. It wasn’t long after that they started playing music and honing their craft together, eventually forming Fresh Breath. Over a decade of marriage filled with boundless adventures continues to drive them as individuals and artists. They recently became semi-finalists at the Canadian Independent Music Video Awards 2022 for the song “World Gone Crazy.”
