Son of Johan – “On Repeat”


A catchy track with a playful bass-y bounce and synth work, “On Repeat” is a new track from Son of Johan, an artist from Malmö, Sweden. “I feel like I’m in a dream,” the vocals open, complemented by a bass-fronted suaveness and key-aided background. “Why the hell are they okay with it?” is joined by a buzzing guitar distortion, adding some bluesy flair. Past the three-minute mark, a heavy bass line and reflective synth are joined by a bouncy piano and eventual guitar lingering, showing off a melodic culmination of the various parts presented. “On Repeat” easily gets stuck in one’s head.

Son of Johan’s sophomore EP is due to release on September 24th.

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