“Caught a Feeling” shows the strongly melodic songwriting of T. Soomian, a Los Angeles-based artist whose sound generates blissful psych-pop sentiments and hypnotic rock twilight. The track’s “take you on a magic trip,” hook features glistening keys and a gently buzzing synth, a delightful accompaniment to Soomian’s soaring vocals. The vocal ooh-ing, mellow bass drive, and twinkling synths combine for an aesthetic that’s extremely digestible, and the type of material fit for sunsets with great company. If “Caught a Feeling” is indicative of the quality to expect on Soomian’s forthcoming full-length Love Relief, out this summer, big things are on the way. “The songs will have a similar sound, not veering too far from groovy, late 70s dad porno pop music,” the artist says. Count me in.
“Caught a Feeling” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2019’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the very selective Spotify compilation Best Tracks of 2019.
