why try – “time 2 heal”


Out today from Montreal-based group why try, “time 2 heal” struts a hooky, mellow sophisti-pop sound. The track is the first single from why try’s upcoming second album, we could do anything. Playful keys and melodic vocals drive to an enjoyably vulnerable — “you know me better than I know myself,” — amidst hypnotic, hooky keys. The vocal mixing emits a dreamy, multi-layered quality that entrances throughout. “time 2 heal” certainly has me anticipating the album from why try, first catching my ear in 2019 with “signal (your effect).”

The album’s second single, “the edge of my love,” releases on June 25th.

“time 2 heal” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2021’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Sophisti-Pop.
