“Baby Don’t Cry” is a dose of throwback pop, conjured by San Francisco artist Lucinda Belle. Recalling a vintage pop sound with touches of jazz, gypsy soul, and blues – reminiscent of Amy Winehouse – Belle shows ample charm throughout. The reflective “baby don’t cry,” vocal backing complements Belle’s striking lead, which resonates especially well as the strings creep in around the three-minute mark. This is a playful track that merges the past and present into a delectable pop-forward sound; Belle’s soulful vocals and general charisma lead the way on this enjoyable track.
“Baby Don’t Cry” and other memorable tracks from January can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2019’ Spotify playlist.
