Ball Pit Witch – “Rating”


A funky success that laments losing a 5-star Uber rating, “Rating” is the latest from Ball Pit Witch, who first caught my ear last year with the excellent “Thinking of You.” Glistening guitars and soulful vocals ascend quickly into a funk-friendly intensification. The one-minute mark brings brassy allure amidst lush strings, making for an excellent series of events. “Rating” is another superbly catchy and well-produced effort from Ball Pit Witch.

“I lost my 5-star Uber rating 3 years ago,” the artist says. “Which is nonsense as I never keep the driver waiting, I make polite conversation, and I always refer to the driver as ‘mate.’ Naturally the losing of my 5-star rating affected me greatly and inspired me to write this song.”

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