El Perro x hora_bolz – “Call me when you’re Home”


A hypnotic, yearning psych-rocker from El Perro x hora_bolz, “Call me when you’re Home” is a stellar debut from the project. Relaxed, retrospective vocals join with guitar shimmers and touches of keys. The “girl, I was wrong,” vocal turn exudes suave, hooky appeal. Light, lingering synths at 02:30 expand briskly with effervescence alongside playful guitars, as the conclusion meshes twangy guitars with lush keys. “Call me when you’re Home” is a striking success of a debut.

Per the artist: “This song is about understanding your own mistakes after a breakup and how we can learn from strong emotions.”

“Call me when you’re Home” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2021’ Spotify playlist.

  1. I quite like it. The dense vocal reverb and strymon rotary guitar are easy to cop–what’s not easy is being this tuneful with sophisticated chord changes, dynamics of level and arrangement, and catchy melody. This sets it apart from the “lame impalas” of the world and puts it more on more of Beatles level of song craft. Very attractive vocal quality. All IMO of course.
