Gum Soul – “Sour”


Based in Bath/Bristol, Gum Soul are a new act reminiscent of Ty Segall, Matthew Good, The Killers, and other rockers with anthemic, stadium-sized tendencies — in addition to their knacks for easily digestible hooks. Debut single “Sour” works off nonchalant vocals and twangy guitars in the verses, with rising distortion in the bridge to give way to the superb “red wine bottle,” chorus. The eerie guitar-led bridge – coming after the three-minute mark – provides some enjoyable variation to cap this one off, with the thunderous chorus arriving one last time.

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