With a melodic garage-rock sound, “Part Of Me” comes via Austin Bullock, an artist Providence, Rhode Island. From Bullock’s forthcoming album Wasted 8, out on March 6th, “Part Of Me” wastes no time — with a thickly hypnotic bass line, distorted guitars, and steady percussion emerging right away. The aesthetic reminds fondly of Cloud Nothings. The chorus reveals anthemic replay value, with shades of Anthony Kiedis in the vocal tone. “Part Of Me” is a loose, fun rocker that has me anticipating Wasted 8.
Regarding the track, Bullock says: “This song is inspired by the overwhelming feeling of falling in love and becoming something more than yourself. Having your plans smashed and being swept away in a new direction, in the best way.”
“Part Of Me” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2020’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Rock.
