Kind Habitat – “Nobody Can Hear Me”

Kind Habitat thoroughly impress with the melodic, twangy “Nobody Can Hear Me.” The guitar twangs and suave vocal tone make for a sound that recalls Neil Young, especially apparent upon the higher-pitched vocal dramatics past the one-minute mark. The project, based out of Cambridge (UK), values DIY home recording — with mixing, playing, and recording done between a living room and garage. “Nobody Can Hear Me” touts an immediate charm to the vocal suaveness and reverberating twang, building well especially upon the wordless backing vocal injection in the final minute, and the added guitar ferocity around 02:38. “Nobody Can Hear Me” is an exciting, catchy success.

“This is about posting into the void, as I have been doing for the last 10 years,” the artist says of the track. “Even when I play at shows I’m certain no-one is listening. It’s not about the lockdown, but it just so happens to have been timed irritatingly.”

“Nobody Can Hear Me” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2020’ Spotify playlist.

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