Broken Keys – “Distant Mood”

“Distant Mood” is a lush, downtempo groover from Cleveland-based DJ, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Broken Keys. A chilled-out soundscape is accompanied by calming vocals, assuming a hazy demeanor over the whirring synth arpeggio and crawling rhythms. The hip-hop and psych-pop elements are evident, in the rhythmic backing and hypnotic vocal flow, respectively. “Distant Mood” is a consuming success with a tendency to put listeners in a relaxed mindset.

The track comes from Broken Keys’ new album of the same name, streaming in full below:

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