Banana Cream – “We’ll Shine”


“We’ll Shine” is the third single from Banana Cream, the project of Los Angeles-based Will Gonzalez. The track is a lush and dreamy effort with glistening guitar flutters, warming vocals, and melodic synths. Gonzalez impresses with a DIY approach – tackling writing, recording, and production – that manages to retain polished, twinkling production. Per Gonzalez, the track is “about rebuilding and overcoming the struggles as individuals and accepting failure as a means of doing things differently the next time around.” The repetition of the track title amidst synth twinkles makes for an alluring, hypnotic effect that draws listeners into the rest of his material.

“We’ll Shine” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2019’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Lush Indie Electronic.
