TARA – “Wander”

Another surefire success from Brooklyn shoegazers TARA, following “Second Guess” in April, “Wander” shows the band’s talents further in regard to layered, atmospheric construction. A warming array of bass, soaring guitars, and moody synth pads assemble in the first minute, as the caressing vocals seamlessly emerge at the 34-second mark. At this point, as the vocals emit a serenely entrancing quality and the hypnotic guitars glide with serene endearment, it’s apparent that TARA’s shoegaze-laden, dream-pop aesthetic is thoroughly convincing once again. 01:37 sees the vocals take a reprieve, with a twangy guitar staying constant over a developing rhythm section. The final two minutes show blissful maneuvering, the guitars ascending with added twang and charisma. “Wander” is a gorgeous success from this very promising act.

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

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Indie Rock.
