Kyoto Banana Star recently released their Wait Stop Hit the Breaks EP, offering four songs that span from garage-rock and power-pop to synth-pop. “Hold Me High” incorporates some of the latter, with a fleeting synth line under the lively guitars. “Walking Song” is more in the rock spectrum, with the “always walkin'” vocal amp-up approaching the one-minute mark reminding fondly of The Pixies. Per the band, the track is “about seeing your ex everywhere.” Stream this fun EP from the British Columbia-based act in full on Spotify.
“Walking Song” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2019’ Spotify playlist.
