Small Planets – “Tonight”

“Tonight” is a dreamy track from Los Angeles act Small Planets, off their self-titled full-length album, released on Friday. The band shows a gripping vein of post-punk with incorporation of dream-pop and shoegaze textural tendencies. Small Planets formed in 2015 after attending “an inspirational Slowdive show at the Ace theater in Los Angeles,” after all — an influence that reflects in their knack for dreamily consuming, steadily evolving songs in the rock vein. “Tonight” rides with hypnotic allure, backed by a hazy synth pad and reverberating rhythm section in the post-punk tradition, a great showing of the band’s strengths.

Per the band, “‘Tonight’ is a reflection on having one more moment with someone you lost.” Stream their full-length on Spotify.

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