The haunting “Host Persona” is Dakota Blue’s second single from the project’s upcoming album Specific System. The Los Angeles-based act — featured last year with the track “Glass Act“, which followed debut album Plaza to Plaza — again feature soft guitars, serene vocals, and a generally nocturnal feel here. The aesthetic, with its haunting guitar jangle, features strongly alongside the track’s memorable melody. Touting a dreamy mystique, “Host Persona” succeeds and resonates.
“Host Persona” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2019’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Shoegaze / Post-Punk / Dream-Pop.
