GrayBeat – “Sad Song”

GrayBeat‘s newly released track “Sad Song” intrigues with its creative electronic textures and infectious melodic pull. The “what would you say?” vocal refrain amidst pulsing percussion concocts a hypnotic soundscape that intrigues, especially as vocals expand with a Thom Yorke-esque vigor around the one-minute mark. The flickering energy around the two-minute turn engages, with a subtle blaring club-friendly element apparent in the shards of keys and percussive repetition. The vocal re-emergence around 03:09 also plays seamlessly. I enjoyed the track’s uniquely hypnotic soundscape throughout, in addition to the subtly effective vocal showing.

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