Noya Blue – “Like I’m Dy8ng”


An inventive new track from Texas-based artist Noya Blue, “Like I’m Dy8ng” touts hypnotic vocal mixing in leading a memorable aesthetic. The evolution from minimalist percussion and vocal front to multi-layered warmness, a bit after the 30-second mark, plays with ghostly intrigue. “It feels like I’m dying / This world is unfair,” lyrics relay relatable sentiments, the multi-layered vocal croon adding emotively. The doo-woppy feel around 01:30 plays nicely as a bridge, as bass-y effect creeps forward. A spoken-word vocal lead in the final one-third also enchants. The track exudes a strong, hypnotic pull throughout with aesthetic creativity on full display.

“”Like I’m Dy8ng” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of July 2021’ Spotify playlist.
