STARMOB – “Dreamlyfe”

“Dreamlyfe” is a riveting psych-rocker from STARMOB, a band from Long Beach, CA. Buzzing guitars and woodwind flourishes throughout concoct an engrossing soundscape amidst serene, confident vocals. The clanging guitars and playful woodwind convergence around the one-minute mark leads enjoyably back into the initial verses; thumping bass and rollicking guitars take hold a minute later, prior to the woodwind presence and vocals leading momentarily with delightful results. “Dreamlyfe” rides enjoyably on a consistent backing lightness throughout — the track’s original “flute jam” classification still holds — with satisfying bursts of psych-friendly guitars.

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