most.unlikely – “topple”


Mellow keys and emotive string flourishes set the scene on the atmospheric, evolving “topple.” The track, from Los Angeles-based artist most.unlikely, retains its consuming soundscape throughout, while strutting notable structural twists and turns. In its second half, the track expands with rock-friendly fervor, as clanging percussion and electric guitar ride strongly. The contrast between piano-laden somberness and exhilarating rock frenzy plays effectively, rendering the quieter moments even more chilling and contemplative. “topple” is a thoroughly successful output from most.unlikely.

“topple” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2021’ Spotify playlist.
