“A Business Relationship” succeeds in melding post-punk and psych-rock with an enthralling intimacy. The track comes via The Sheeps, describing the effort as “about that sinking feeling when you realize no relationship can stay strictly business.” The track touts a haunting, emotional vocal presence that entrances throughout. A shimmering guitar presence in the second half, reminding me fondly of early Interpol, adds further depth. “A Business Relationship” succeeds with its textural, emotive vein of dreamy rock.
“A Business Relationship” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2021’ Spotify playlist.
