Sydney-based pop artist Aaron Beri incorporates a smooth pop sound reminiscent of ’90s R&B with a darkly atmospheric tint. Beri’s track “Naked” shows the rising artist’s knack for consuming soundscapes and accessible melodies. Working alongside producer Audius Mtawarwira, who accommodates an aptly soulful tone and level of shining vocal effect without overdoing it, Beri’s vocal passion shines throughout. The late-night rhythms and hypnotic, pulsing key shimmer are great accompaniments to Beri and background vocalist Liv Harris. Look for more from Beri as the year progresses.
“Naked” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2019’ Spotify playlist.
