Hamilton Fox – “The Sweetest Thing”


Recalling shades of Teenage Fanclub’s hooky power-pop, “The Sweetest Thing” is a new track from Swedish artist Hamilton Fox. Off the act’s upcoming album, “The Sweetest Thing” rides melodically in the first minute+ on a series of endearing vocal and guitar-driven hooks. A popping, harmonious guitar solo enters shortly thereafter, diversifying an effort otherwise content to emphasize its excellent initial hooks. The power-pop familiarity and easy-listening appeal makes “The Sweetest Thing” a fun listen with ample replay value.

“The Sweetest Thing” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2019’ Spotify playlist.
