RGB – “High On The Ceiling”


A beautiful slice of soulful R&B with a variety of interesting twists, “High On The Ceiling” comes from RGB, a Tel-Aviv based band formed in 2019. Concise synth trickles and a mellow lead build to lovely backing vocal adornments past the one-minute mark, with effervescent orchestral clangs driving to the lovely synth-laden “high on the ceiling with you,” hook that follows. A serene, subdued bridge follows with delightful results, before the catching hook re-emerges throughout the conclusion. Soulful vocal entrancing, lushly effervescent synths, and an evolving song structure help drive a strongly memorable track.

The release is described as “a song about bad habits, and struggling to handle life through all the obstacles in the way.”

“High On The Ceiling” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2021’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie R&B.
