The dreamily engrossing “Star Sign” weaves murky vocals, lush synths, and hypnotic rhythms for a captivating sound, courtesy of California-based quartet Roman Around. The spacey synths and haunting piano resonance mesh with steady percussion throughout, complemented by Roman Rivera’s yearning vocal presence. An vocal-less bridge just prior to the two-minute mark fully showcases the track’s ample pull, steeped in late-night atmospherics. “Star Sign” enamors with its mysterious, nocturnal strut.
Look for the band’s upcoming album in the coming months, in addition to a tour next summer.
“Star Sign” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2021’ Spotify playlist.
