Produced by Mat Dwyer and mastered by Nicholas de Lorenzo, the track is built upon captivating piano melodies and ethereal atmospheric sonics that take us further into the duos enchanting sonic realms. The duos captivating vocals are delicately intertwined during the songs string infused choruses, with each vocalist showcasing their unique textural tones throughout their individual verses. Conceptually, Struggling to breathe tells the tale of a relationships demise and the lingering emotions that remain, serving as a beacon of hope.

"Written from the perspective of both sides, the song is an emotive and transcendent due about the difficulties of moving on from love lost. We hope it can be shared with those who have endured the in-between moments of suffering. it is a cathartic piece that we hope allows others to process the feeling of hopelessness (especially after COVID lockdowns) and let them know they are not alone.

Made up of Alice Fitzgerald and Rowan Sizer, the duo recently took to the stage at the Tablelands Folk Festival and also took home the Open Songwriter's 'The Real McCoy' Award for an unreleased track Barefeet. Influenced by the likes of Missy Higgins, Ben Lee and Of Monsters and Men, Ally Row bring a confessional and relatable approach to their lyricism.
