Soft People – “Ramon”

Expanding from suave synth-tinged contemplation into excitably hooky effervescence, “Ramon” is a track from Oakland-based duo Soft People, off their new album Absolute Boys. Cleverly, the track incorporates several lyrical Beatles references, with the track itself being a portmanteau of Paul McCartney’s track “Ram On.” Melodically, there’s a consuming enticement throughout, especially as the perky effervescence picks up — and where the vocals assume an unbridled passion that reminds fondly of The Associates’ Billy Mackenzie. The rest of Absolute Boys is certainly recommended, as well.

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