It’s our pleasure to be able to bring you the video for Mouth Breather’s single ‘Shoes’, as well as a stream to his debut album Listerine Dream. Mouth Breather is an up-and-coming alt-pop artist from Toronto, who takes listeners outside the barriers of pop music and into a world that’s entirely his own.

‘Shoes’ is an exploration of anxiety and feelings of alienation that’s easy to feel within a world that’s heavily influenced by being online. On ‘Shoes’, Mouth Breather said:

"We all feel bad sometimes, and there's a ton of ways to handle that. For example, you could try meditation, a fantastic way to reset your brain and relieve yourself of anxiety while also experiencing self-discovery. There is also therapy, an incredibly important tool that is chronically underused in society right now. But from my extended research into the mental health of youths using social media, it seems that by far the most popular way to bring yourself out of a bad mood is to buy a pair of Maison Margiela red and blacks. This song is a tribute to that. "

Along with sharing the video for ‘Shoes’, Mouth Breather has also unveiled his album, featuring nine tracks that are all invigorating and captivating slices into an artist on the rise.
