“Birthday Boy” is a stirring folk track from Berlin-based artist Reveree. Piano accompanies acoustical plucks and a solemn vocal presence, reminiscent of Nick Cave. The elements intensify past the one-minute mark, casting an ominous feeling led by clanging piano and trickling acoustics. “Birthday Boy” shows enjoyable variation from dark, creaking beginnings into a spirited, stylish bounce. Reveree shows a consuming sound here that I further anticipate hearing on the project’s forthcoming LP, out in November.
“Birthday Boy” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2021’ Spotify playlist.
