Jared Doherty – “Flower”

Singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jared Doherty shows his charming psych-pop arsenal on new track “Flower,” a highlight from his Small Window LP, released in November. The Kamloops, British Columbia-based musician plays in the bands Mother Sun, At Mission Dolores and Elsewhere in addition to his solo output. In fusing more traditional folk-rock from inspirations like The Byrds and Neil Young into a modern take with hints of Mac DeMarco, Doherty shows on “Flower” a suave disposition with a multitude of memorable moments — like the chime at 00:53 – “shut your eyes and look around,” – as the vocals assume the forefront in leading back to the enjoyably melodic mixture of guitars and light percussion. “Flower” is a quality showing from Doherty.

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