Warming – “Dark”


Winnipeg-based project Warming is the synth-pop project of Brady Allard, who wrote his 12-song LP while living out of a van. Taking inspiration from ’80s pop music, evident in the nonchalant though melodic vocal presence mingling with guitar lines and synth-pop additions, Allard impresses with the newly released track “Dark.” A buzzing guitar presence heads the verses, while a perky and very ’80s-forward synth lead accompanies a more melodic delivery in the chorus, with Allard singing “Does it make you feel sad to know that life isn’t fair / Or is the weight off your chest now that there’s nothing left here / For you to know.” Soaring guitar additions at 02:36 helps bring this successful track to a satisfying conclusion.

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

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