Anthony Lazaro’s latest track “Written in the Stars” bursts open with a bustling rhythmic style reminiscent of The Strokes. Lazaro’s vocals drip with raspy allure as they parade across a linear melody that’s content in its subtle variation. The general melodic build-up, arising around the 45-second mark, is continually gripping. The track’s resulting lo-fi rock sound is simultaneously punchy and soothing — like having a shot of espresso. The Italian singer/songwriter, who’s presently living in Hamburg (Germany), certainly impresses with this effort.
“Written in the Stars” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of March 2019’ Spotify playlist.
