Kid Nash – “Don’t Believe Me”


“Don’t Believe Me” is a melodically melancholic success from Kid Nash, the project’s second single. Characterized as “a song of lament,” “Don’t Believe Me” sports glistening keys and hints of woodwinds in its atmospheric verses. The “I swear to god we’re enemies,” vocal hook signals the additional emergence of a reflective vocal presence, adding an emotive dose of charisma to the fold. A percussion-less bridge at 01:54 emphasizes some nocturnal synths, adding nicely to the atmospheric variety. The track closes with a final go-round for the main hook, ending in satisfying form.

“Don’t Believe Me” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2019’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Catchy Indie Pop.
