Carlos Nobrega - Breath Me 
Carlos Nobrega - Breath Me

It's always tricky to judge a song you've been told is a cover version when you don't know the original song, you have to take it on its own merits. Carlos Nobrega's version of 'Breath Me', originally by the hugely talented Sia, is a sparse, piano lead lament which builds nicely with some programmed beats and breaks adding to the sonic landscape. Nobrega's voice is frail and fragile enough to convey the emotion of the song but there are moments when the intimation of a man singing another person's song in another language shines through and something is lost in translation. It wouldn't get through very far on the X-Factor but then who would want to?
