Jonny Herman – “Corinna”

The dreamy “Corinna” comes via Jonny Herman, an artist based in Norwich, UK. The reflective vocal backing approaching the one-minute mark plays with infectious anticipation, satisfyingly leading into a series of jangly guitars and dual-vocals thereafter. The wonderful escalation at 02:18 shimmers, with vocal-led feeling of triumph playing nicely amidst spirited organ and cascading guitars. The track’s production is thoroughly captivating, especially in its second-half ascension. “Corinna” was recorded using a mix of live instruments, software synths, and drum machines.

Per the artist: “The name ‘Corinna’ was picked from Ovid’s Amores, and has been used repeatedly in music as a name that is synonymous with unrequited love.”

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

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