Larkman – “Drivin’ To Ya”


“Drivin’ To Ya” is a catchy new track from Larkman, an artist and producer based on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Initially starting as a hip-hop producer in 2017, Larkman expanded into more pop and R&B ground in 2018. Several enjoyable singles have since released, including “Magic Mirror” in March, which showcased a vintage R&B/soul sound. “Drivin’ To Ya” channels similar soulful yearning, also with a more nocturnal, electro-pop spirit that plays infectiously. More subtle electro-pop beginnings expand with glistening prior to the one-minute mark, with the “all night,” reflective vocal hook succeeding. Atmospheric and convincingly yearning, “Drivin’ To Ya” is a delight from Redman Larkin, who cites his greatest influences as Prince, Tame Impala, and Tyler the Creator.

The artist writes the following regarding the track:

“”Drivin'” is about an introverted, closed off person finding the courage to tell the person they have long had a crush on how they truly feel. The song is imagined as the score to an epic climax of a coming age film, when the main character completes their character arc and realizes their goals.”

“Drivin’ To Ya” 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 Pop.
