“Jesus Murphy” develops from quaint, yearning synth-pop into an infectious sound with bright guitar twangs. The release from Canadian-born artist Peter Mol succeeds in its accessible aesthetic and easily accessible melody, excelling especially in the final minute with the multi-layered vocal lines. Mol has seen considerable success as a session musician, producer, and songwriter. He is half of successful Canadian act Zerbin, who tout multiple top 40 alt-rock singles, and has works featured across a variety of media. Mol has his first solo album on the horizon, which he self-produced and recorded alongside multiple creative collaborators. If “Jesus Murphy” is any indication, the album is poised to succeed.
“Jesus Murphy” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2019’ Spotify playlist.
