Following up last month’s excellent track “Make a Little Room,” Tampico Lasting Love continue the strong stretch with the lively, brass-forward enthusiasm of “Fashion Icon Margaret Willden.” The expressive vocal lead and electronic-minded percussion inspire a sound reminiscent of LCD Soundsystem to start. The brassy “good to me,” hook kicks off the track’s expanded fervor, riding bustling enjoyment throughout and especially into an expanding, orchestral-involved conclusion. Woodwinds flourish with an accelerated passion in the final minute, adding further depth to a track that enthralls throughout with its stellar groove.
The artist explains the track’s inspirations below:
“This song was written after watching the Netflix show “Next in Fashion.” While relying heavily on trap and funk beats this song takes on a life of its own with danceable hard-hitting choruses quirky textures and a full live-recorded symphony building throughout the bridge to climax in an ecstasy inducing celebration in the final chorus. The bari sax line that originated as a bouncy synth is the center of the track and the whole thing grew from there. Multiple artists I’ve shown the track to have responded with the exact same words: “Whao! That was a trip!””
“Fashion Icon Margaret Willden” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2021’ Spotify playlist.
