Gentle Ivanhoe Death Skulls – “Careful Is My Middle Name”


“Careful Is My Middle Name” is a catchy, hazy rocker from Gentle Ivanhoe Death Skulls, the Stockholm-based act that impressed in 2017 with the track “Green Hang Ten.” Compared to that effort’s post-punk murkiness, “Careful Is My Middle Name” pursues a more melodic direction, somewhere in the power-pop and garage-rock vein. Hitting precisely at the one-minute mark, the track’s chorus is wonderfully melodic and replay-inducing. Look for the project’s new EP in the coming months.

“Careful Is My Middle Name” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of March 2020’ Soundcloud playlist.
