“second line” is a charming new track from knuckles, an artist from Sweden. The bouncy keys and melodic guitars intertwine with melodic enjoyment throughout, paired with vocals that show hooky ascension into the chorus. 01:11 sees a lovely hook that perks up the track, with chirping guitar jangles and passionate vocals. “second line” plays with a fleeting, though undeniably infectious, quality. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next from knuckles, whose use of surf-pop harmonies and catchy guitar lines really excels here.
“second line” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2020’ Spotify playlist.
