That Gum U Like – “Ballad Of A Boy”

Featured in the past with tracks like “Biography” and “Killer,” That Gum U Like return with another successful track in “Ballad Of A Boy.” The act’s trademarks — serene vocals, dreamy guitar tones, and touches of synth — remain. A bass-y synth arpeggio around 03:21 serves as an effective bridge, leading to a gratifying conclusion where dreamy arpeggios meet lulling guitar tones. That Gum U Like’s mixture of shoegaze/dream-pop with electronic elements continues to impress.

“Ballad Of A Boy” and other memorable tracks released in July can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of July 2019’ Spotify playlist.
