“No Good at Goodbyes” is the latest from Brooklyn-based artist Harrison Lipton. The track establishes an engaging feel via dreamy guitar tones, a bouncy bass line, and synth-laden adornments, with the suave vocals emerging just past the 30-second mark. The “I’m no good at goodbyes,” hook plays convincingly, with the sound of telephone ringing fitting in well. Citing influences such as Hall & Oates, Men I Trust, and Sade, Lipton shows a firm grasp of his suave, melodic stylistic arsenal here. I’m looking forward to more material later this year.
“No Good at Goodbyes” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2019’ Spotify playlist.
