Kamilita – “Daddy”


Kamilita is a 30-year-old Brazilian-American artist. Her lo-fi electro-pop sound impresses with a catchy sort of charisma on the track “Daddy.” Kamilita, who produces on her own after departing a career as a classical and jazz musician, describes the track as “about my painful relationship with my father,” with the companion release “Dare Devil Davey” being about “a man who healed that wound.”

“Daddy” features a striking vocal croon and nostalgic, catchy synths to start. A turn around the two-minute mark shows a queasier composure that plays well atmospherically, especially as ominous synths rise past the three-minute mark. The murky synth work is enjoyable throughout in its varying intensities, with the final minute melding the various components nicely, as the initial melody winds it down. I’m looking forward to hearing more from Kamilita.

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