K. L. Mazlin – “Middle Ground”


“Middle Ground” is a track released this week from Melbourne-based artist K.L. Mazlin. Serving as “an ode to getting older,” “Middle Ground” opens nicely with a piano-driven soulfulness, complemented by suavely yearning vocals. The eventual string-based addition joins nicely with bouncy piano past one-minute mark. 01:31 shows a consuming expansion into soaring psych-pop territory. “Middle Ground” is an enjoyably constructed track from K. L. Mazlin, developing from quaintly melodic beginnings to a suavely anthemic fervor in the second half. I’m fond of the track’s vocal soulfulness and second-half expansion, in particular.

“Middle Ground” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of July 2020’ Spotify playlist.

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