Carter Vail – “Melatonin”

Carter Vail’s “Melatonin” is a gorgeous track whose twinkling hook reminds of being hit by warm sunlight on a wintry day. Suave, subdued verses lead into this blissful chorus, with the escalating bridge at 01:52 excelling at captivating the listener and seamlessly shining a light on Vail’s vocals. Vail, born in a suburb of New York in 1997, grew up with diverse musical influences. His South African mother and Tennessean father introduced him to a wide array of music styles, which is paying off today in the form of melodic, creative takes on rock with a pop-minded knack for hooks.

“Melatonin” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2018’ Spotify playlist.
