Dot.s – “Evil Lines”
Dot.s’ “Evil Lines” is a super catchy track that rides on glistening synths and infectious vocal harmonies, with climatic orchestral whirring adding to the gripping sound. “Evil Lines” comes via the forthcoming and third LP, Long for this World, from the Atlanta-based five-piece. Dot.s’ aim for “percussive, synth-heavy, dance music” with ample hooky appeal hits the mark here. The pulsating rhythm section and synth accompany the breezily melodic vocals, with different vocal tones assuming the lead in enjoyable form. The string-laden rumination around 01:30 lends a gripping chamber-pop feel, a testament to the act’s firm grasp of production and melody. “Evil Lines” marks the first of eight singles from the album, each released on a weekly basis, starting with today’s release of this gem.
“Evil Lines” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2019’ Spotify playlist.
