“The River” is a suave, consuming track from NYC artist Charlie Blasberg, featuring vocalist Hannah Noelle and guitarist Joe Gomez. Sporadic, pulsing organs and galloping percussion drive alongside the riveting vocals and intensifying guitar presence. “Come a little closer,” Noelle invites during the stellar hook, eventually giving way to Gomez’ guitar work as the track comes to a conclusion. The tender guitar tones and majestic backing organ converge for a fully satisfying conclusion. Charlie Blasberg and co. show excellently throughout this melodic, accessible rocker.
Per the artist, “The River” is “about temptation and how the vices in your life can have voices of their own, calling you against your better judgement.”
“The River” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2021’ Spotify playlist.
