Crowded Places – “Somewhere Soon”


“Somewhere Soon” evolves with hooky appeal, from suave electro-tinged frequencies to soaring pop effervescence. The track, the latest from Pittsburgh-based artist Crowded Places, emphasizes stellar production throughout. Soulful beginnings, more in an R&B vein, expand with grace into the title-referencing hook. Heightened vocal dramatics around 02:30 provide additional intrigue, guiding with blaring guitars into a hypnotic, multi-layered conclusion. “Somewhere Soon” hits all the marks.

Per Crowded Places, the track is “about a journey towards a destination or goal that you know is within your reach, you just have to keep it in sight.”

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

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