April Rose Gabrielli, singer of Long Island-based band The Rose Monarch, delivers powerhouse vocals in this video. Against a backdrop of white walls and electric guitars, Gabrielli sings about getting chased in a dream and accepting the inevitability of death. Her vocal range will give you goosebumps throughout the song, underscoring the darkness and melancholy of the lyrics. "Breathe In" is slow, beautiful ballad that shines a spotlight on Gabrielli's vocals and makes it easy to imagine her lending her voice to louder, harder rock songs, too. — Katie Anastas
