Mark Evich – “Backseat Love”


Following the striking success “Stuck,” NYC artist Mark Evich again impresses with the suavely infectious “Backseat Love.” A swanky initial beat gives way to jazzy piano vibes just following the one-minute mark, while still centering around the “in the backseat on the car,” vocal hook. “When I was growing up in Russia, I remember watching movies, showing Americans making love in their cars,” Evich says. “Then I moved to the U.S. myself and felt obliged to write an R&B song about it. I took the live version of this song we performed back in 2018, chopped it up and added some new-school trappish drums to it.” The track manages to successfully balance serene key-laden sounds with a vibrant R%B aesthetic. Very catchy, as usual from Evich.

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