Joel Stanton – “Luck”


“Luck” is a hook-y new electronic-pop track from Joel Stanton, whose prior single “Rumble & Take” made a strong impression in April. His hook-friendly, electronic-forward sound reminded of both Future Islands and The Pet Shop Boys at various points then. “Luck” rides on a more playful synth-pop lead, a bouncy and colorful melody shining at the “I need a little more luck from you,” hook. There’s some Junior Boys vibes inherent here, as well. Per Joel, the track “confronts the creative hustle from the role of provider.” It’s another success from Stanton.

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

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Catchy Electro and Synth-Pop 2018.
