SONI – “Happy to Serve”


“Happy to Serve” is a funky, soulful delight from SONI. Tranquil guitars and brass spurts provide initial energy, with spirited vocals entering thereafter. Lyrics reflect on a youthful angst: “Yeah I’m that girl from around the way, the one pops tried to hide… Cuz he didn’t want me to get into trouble.” An invigorating melodic twist through the one-minute mark shows the track’s ever-changing nature early. Further, around 01:49, the track features a hip-hop vocal alongside dramatic string and brass entries. “Happy to Serve” exhibits a variety of fun, melodic twists and an overall confident aesthetic touching on funk, soul, and pop.

“Happy to Serve” and other memorable tracks released in May can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2020’ Spotify playlist.
