Jakob Kupferberg – “It’s (Never) Too Late for Love”


“It’s (Never) Too Late for Love” is a stirring track from Jakob Kupferberg‘s new EP, Sweet Surrender. Spirited acoustics and strings provide “It’s (Never) Too Late for Love” with an alluring intro. Suave vocals emerge shortly thereafter with an entrancing charm. Aesthetically, the strings and stirring vocals remind me fondly of The Waterboys. The poignant “end of all times,” bridge leads nicely into the string-laden “it’s too late for love,” hook — with shades of Rolling Stones there. The acoustics and strings show enthralling interplay throughout. I’m also enjoying the diversification between verse and chorus — the track manages to be melodically memorable without feeling too tonally samey, a sure accomplishment from the Danish-born singer/songwriter.

“It’s (Never) Too Late for Love” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2020’ Spotify playlist.
