“V’Ger’s Dream” is the debut single of Michael Droske, showing a hypnotic psych-folk sound with lush guitars and woodwind flourishes. Laid-back vocals and guitar twangs exude an alluring, engaging aesthetic to start. The spacey backing to the video meshes well with the hypnotic, serene enjoyment. The chorus around 02:08 is lovely and captivating — a bit McCartney-esque in those plucky guitar twangs. “VGer’s Dream” touts stellar songwriting and an overall consuming aesthetic, which feels enjoyably nostalgic though also refreshing in its melodic rollout. I’m looking forward to what’s next from Droske, who has another single out in the coming months.
“V’Ger’s Dream” and other memorable tracks from January can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2021’ Spotify playlist.
