The Jamaican songstress Jaz Elise reveals visualizer for “Breathe,” the personal closer from her debut EP The Golden Hour (In.Digg.Nation Collective/Six Course Music/RCA Records). Growing up in Harbour View, a small coastal community of Kingston, the singer strolls down the shoreline to get some peace of mind over soft breezy jazz rhythms produced by  J.L.L. x iotosh. “Breathe” is a stripped-down reveal of how she deals with the stresses of life. “It’s a battlefield of my mind, but when it gets too heavy, I just need to breathe,” she sings.

“I was going through a very hard time some months back when I wrote this song. Breathe was a message to myself. It’s literally me singing to myself during a state of panic. I had internal feelings I couldn’t explain but know I needed to work through for my own mental health. This is a message to ourselves to just take it one step at a time and just breathe. Whatever your release is, find it and do it. For me it was music, reading, meditation and time with self. I hope this song soothes any troubled heart and soul and calms the mind of anyone suffering mentally. Remember to breathe. We can get through this,”
