Showing a tranquilly consuming aesthetic fondly reminiscent of The Clientele, “Sour Blue” comes via Los Angeles-based band Sour Blue. Mellow guitars frolic amidst solemn vocal layers, offering a comforting refrain at the one-minute mark — “don’t you worry,” amidst serene guitar glistening. The subsequent “staring,” refrain is especially captivating, leading into warming brass components that subtly linger alongside the vocal melody shift. Distant percussive additions in the second half lend further hypnotic qualities to the dreamy sound throughout the enamoring “Oil Lamp.”
