Weston Smith – “Psychic”

Based out of Washington, D.C., Weston Smith crafts atmospheric synth-pop with gripping melodic appeal. The track “Psychic” shows just that, with added chamber-pop appeal, advancing from lounge-friendly lushness into a stirring fantasy with sparkling doses of synths. The track comes from Smith’s upcoming album Reflection Collection, out on 8/12.

“This album is special to me because I challenged myself to take a selection of some of my older material and mix it over from scratch,” Smith says. “I wanted to do this because I have learned so much from mixing and mastering my recordings and other’s recordings over the years and my quality has drastically improved, plus all of these songs still hold a special place in my heart.”

Originally released in December 2016, “Psychic” was – per Smith – “one of the first songs I had ever released that touched on my sense of anxiety and how I blatantly share my emotions in public without even noticing.” Piano, synths, and graceful vocals converge for a consuming aesthetic on this excellent track.

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