Robi Mitch – “Golden Hour” + “Can’t Win”


The beautiful “Golden Hour” is the latest from Robi Mitch, the Bristol (UK)-based artist who has impressed previously with the tracks “Our Year” and “Distant Sun.” “Golden Hour” touts a quality that feels enchanting — led with ample charm by an ethereal vocal presence, mingling seamlessly with serene guitars and glistening keys, evidenced nicely at points like the two-minute mark. “All of my fears, where have they gone?” Mitch asks during the hook, a fantastic, melodic section.

Another recommended recent track from Robi Mitch is “Can’t Win,” released last month. “Can’t Win” and “Golden Hour” do well in showcasing Mitch’s strengths as a songwriter. The former touts a lusher synth-pop presence to start, with the “no matter how I try,” refrain playing with convincing allure. The wordless vocal section past the mid-point exudes a hypnotic, psych-friendly quality, carrying well into the satiating conclusion.

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

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