Sceenic – “Old Time Movies”


“Old Time Movies” is an impressive and lush piece of melodic pop songwriting from Sceenic. The track initially rides on a straightforward, acoustic singer/songwriter flair — tonally reminiscent of John Mayer. By the one-minute mark, a tropical-tinged array of guitar fluttering and swooning backing vocal effects reveal themselves, firmly touting “Old Time Movies” as a track filled with chilled-out vibes and melodic charm. “Old Time Movies” is very pleasant, easy-listening success from a project that shows ample songwriting talent throughout the four tracks available on Soundcloud.

“”Old Time Movies” is nostalgic track that’s themed around admiring vintage movies and the accompanying times from decades ago,” the artist says. “I wanted to strip everything down as much as possible and have the guitar parts be the forefront of the track while adding lots of classic recording elements such as tape saturation, along with lots of wow and flutter.”

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