Preston Campbell – “Outside”

“Outside” enthralls with a lush bossa-nova groove and hooky melodic pull, emitting a mellow, soulful playfulness throughout. The track comes via Preston Campbell, a singer/songwriter based in San Antonio and Austin, Texas. Understated, rainy-day vocals drive to a smooth, effective chorus past the one-minute turn. Enthusiastic backing vocals and excitable guitar fragments lead to an emotive outpouring rounding the three-minute mark, carrying enjoyably into a tender guitar emphasis. “Outside” wins over easily with its smooth production and amiable melodic pull.

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