Jonathan Moonbear – “It’s Not Me”


Jonathan Moonbear‘s excellent “It’s Not Me” mesmerizes with a dreamy psych-rock aesthetic. The track comes via the new album Positive Time + Negative Time =Now. The first half shows a fairly quaint, hypnotic sound with dazed vocals and trickling guitar delights, complemented by a lulling background of keys/organs. Glistening guitars round the two-minute mark, with the guitar-based presence increasing considerably in the jam-friendly second half, where shades of Pink Floyd enjoyably exist. The final minute captivates with escalating guitar distortion, playing with allure as eerie string-based segments linger in the background. “It’s Not Me” is a fantastic showing from Jonathan Moonbear, based out of Coventry, UK.

“It’s Not Me” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2020’ Spotify playlist.

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