Weston Smith – “Regeneration” / “Netherworld”

Two new tracks from Weston Smith, “Regeneration” and “Netherworld” continues the artist’s knack for hypnotic, psych-friendly electronic pop. Evidenced already in prior gems like “Mirror World” and “Ellanor,” Weston Smith furthers his impressive, creative output here. “Regeneration” touts a darkly intoxicating synth-pop push, reminiscent of John Maus. Smith’s vocals tout a brooding, spaced by twinkling keys as the two-minute mark approaches. The track’s continuous, blaring nature of electronics plays effectively alongside the hypnotic croon.

True to its name, “Netherworld” plays fit for a midnight service in a Gothic cathedral — the organ-like procession meshing with haunting brass for a thoroughly captivating sound. Similar to “Regeneration,” its atmosphere is wholly memorable. Both these tracks are an impressive showing from Weston Smith.

“Regeneration” 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 Electronic.
