Alexis Neon – “Sink Into It”
“Sink Into It” is a gorgeous success from Ottawa-based duo Alexis Neon. A single from their forthcoming Seven Windows EP, releasing later this summer, “Sink Into It” meshes entrancing vocals with guitars, keys, and synths that form a hypnotic, yearning soundscape in the soft-rock and dream-pop realms. The lonesome synth tones and crawling bass around 01:50 would feel at home on Twin Peaks. The ensuing creeping guitars and delicate vocals send chills down my spine; it’s a gorgeous moment. “Sink Into It” is a fantastic piece of songwriting, touting melodic and atmospheric chops from this very talented duo.
“Sink Into It” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of July 2019’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Lush, Suave/Slacker, + Jangle-Rock.
