Harley Small – “Apartments”

Following singles “Friends” and “Reality Therapy,” “Apartments” is the third entry from Harley Small in the band’s current album cycle. The project hails from Vancouver, British Columbia, honing in on a melodic vein of rock with exhilarating guitar tones and whimsical vocal melodies. “Apartments” rides on subtle synth bursts and clanking guitar build-ups, with the “spoke too soon,” vocal cue around the 40-second mark signaling the entry of vibrant guitars and vocal hooks. “I wrote it about telling your friends your true feelings about them while at the same time struggling with the rising cost of housing,” the artist says of the track. “Apartments” — as well as the two other singles — show Harley Small’s upcoming album as something to certainly anticipate.

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

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Indie Rock.
