Premiere: Parts – “Song of Long”


Released today, “Song of Long” is a consuming track from Israeli act Parts, off the band’s new album, Pleasure as Pain. Showing a haunting initial sound with trickling guitars and chilly vocals, a guitar-based energy around 01:31 permeates enjoyably, exuding vibes tonally reminiscent of Radiohead. The “and recall,” line is followed by dreamy, captivating guitars — a section that culminates in a bustling rock fervor at 03:30, with vibes akin here to Queens of the Stone Age. “How long has it been?” is repeated in the track’s conclusion amidst bouncy guitar pulsations, capping this stellar single off with a delightful energy.

Per the band, the track — written and sung by guitarist Bar Huss — “deals with the passage of time and its impact on memories, perception and love.”

“Song of Long” 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.
