Einsam – “Stuck Pig”


“Stuck Pig” is a consuming, creative track from Einsam, finding inspiration from “Bristol’s trip-hop heritage.” The various backing effects and overall rhythmic drive tout an alluring trip-hop vibe, while the piano additions and vocal performance maintain an accessible melding of rock and pop. Shimmering keys around 01:40 – “what am I getting myself into,” – consume, showing a refreshing structural twist. The captivating vocal lead and icy keys tout a heady sound that strongly intrigues overall. A piano-driven twist approaching 02:30 invigorates as well, riding to a lovely conclusion with bassy reverberations and icy keys on full display. “Stuck Pig” stands out in both its creative stylistic integrations and interesting soundscape.

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