Laura Jean Anderson – “Thinkin Bout You”

Laura Jean Anderson’s ethereal pop vocals remind fondly of Minnie Riperton on new track “Thinking Bout You”. Entrancing refrains like “I’ve been thinking bout you / please don’t mind / it’s been getting me through,” combine with a soft, but omnipresent rhythm section and lush backing vocals to produce a daydream-infused atmosphere. Buttressed by a dramatic string presence, a vintage Hollywood glam transition at the 1:45 mark provides enough variation to keep the listener grounded in reality.

Anderson grew up in Washington state among a Mormon family. She chose music as her outlet for rebellion. Similar to her eclectic background, her musical style borrows from the past, with Anderson adding her unwavering voice to forge a new future.

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