Carling – “Never Really Clicked”


“Never Really Clicked” is an enjoyable pop success from Los Angeles artist Carling, who calls the track “a song that makes me smirk, dance, and shake my head at the uncomfortable situations we find ourselves in.” A self-described “anthem for honest love seekers,” “Never Really Clicked” begins with a quaint pull — with a staccato-like effect complementing a lush synth pad as Carling’s vocals escalate into a bursting hook featuring buzzing synths and rhythmic accompaniments. “Never Really Clicked” remains accessible and radio-friendly while touting a sincerely emotive appeal, making for a very enjoyable pop effort.

“Never Really Clicked” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2019’ Spotify playlist.

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