Sugarloaf Beach – “Laying on the Grass”


Evaporate your Monday blues with the lush, tropical-sounding “Laying on the Grass” from Sugarloaf Beach. The project of a Brazilian singer/songwriter based in Melbourne, Sugarloaf Beach maintains a bossa nova influence within surf-rock and dream-pop sentiments, an ideal fit for the laid-back and island-set aesthetic. The serene wordless backing croon and tropical guitar swaying opens the track in engrossing form, re-emerging around 01:17 after a series of lush verses. The touch of saxophone in the conclusion lends a full, satisfying feel that accompanies the island guitars with ease. “Laying on the Grass” plays like a cool summer breeze that you want to keep passing by.

“Laying on the Grass” 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 Serene Rainy Days.
