Touting a cavernous, dark soundscape, “Slow Down” is a gripping new track from Mmend. Murmurs of guitar and twinkling keys illuminate a steady vocal presence, which uptick in intensity among the “just slow down,” moment at 01:23. Moments later, distorted guitar and more prominent percussion add vigor to the track’s initially sleepy soundscape. What follows is a fierce, empowering vocal performance that succeeds with hypnotic allure alongside the meticulously crafted soundscape. Look for more from Mmend in the near future.
“Slow Down” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2018’ Spotify playlist.
