Described by the artist as “a hopeful song about fighting back against forces that keep you down,” “Kings and Cattle” is the latest from Austin Bullock. Impressing earlier this year with the track “Part of Me,” the Providence, Rhode Island-based artist shows a more spacious, contemplative sound here — with a calming psych-tinged quality. The vocal backing reflection at 01:20, followed by a spirited organ push, makes for a nice sequence of events; the verses throughout achieve a similarly hypnotic charm. “Kings And Cattle” is another winner from Bullock.
“Kings and Cattle” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2020’ Spotify playlist.
