South Shallows – “Awake”


The tender and twangy “Awake” is a new single from South Shallows. The duo craft a dreamy, lush sound throughout — with several catching moments, from the vocals’ gentle lead-in to serenely entrancing guitar around the two-minute mark. Minimalist, reverbed clap-laden percussion provides subtle charm throughout. “Awake” plays with a delicate yet hooky melodic pull, combining with an accessibly calming aesthetic — resulting in a track touting ample lo-fi pop charm.

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