James Mantis – “Pockets”

“Pockets” is a catchy, stylish synth-pop track from James Mantis. Aesthetically, the bursting synth-pop effervescence in the hook aligns with melodic vocals — touched with hint of falsetto — to remind of Dent May. The track — described as “a song about being broke,” — is touched with a melodic guitar entry in the final moments, adding a bouncy vibrancy to the already-illuminated synth-pop tone. “Pockets” shows a captivating vein of well-produced, infectious synth-pop from James Mantis, certainly an artist I’ll be looking forward to more releases from.

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