Africali – “You Brighten Every Bit of My Day”

Africali’s stellar track “You Brighten Every Bit of My Day,” shows a gripping, smoky feel right away with mellow rhythm section, tranquil guitar licks, and tender vocal-led entrancement. Chuckling @ 00:56 adds an enjoyably loose feel leading into the title-referencing vocal hook. The lovely guitar solo around the two-minute mark, playfully leading the charge until the track’s tidy conclusion. This a consuming, laid-back success that entices replays.

The track comes from Africali, a San Francisco-based act beautifully blending together rock, funk, ’70s South African music, and hip-hop. Check out more recent releases from this talented act below, including the hypnotic psych-laden gem “South Africa”:

“You Brighten Every Bit of My Day” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2020’ Spotify playlist.
