Zerrin – “Sleepless”

Released today from Australian artist Zerrin, “Sleepless” is a track with ample art-pop mystique. The “can I be you,” vocal expression with mingling keys, in particular, lends a fully haunting feel reminiscent of Kate Bush. The track’s structure sprawls with ambition, successfully interweaving art-pop and dream-pop elements. The initial sparseness and understated vocals evolve considerably, never ceasing in doing so with theatrical guitar feedback, string-laden pushes, and expressive vocal rises throughout. “Sleepless” is a track that never dulls.

The track comes via Zerrin’s debut EP, Consolations, which was self-recorded and produced. The Sydney-born artist is presently based in Glasgow, and describes the track as “about trying to figure out who you are and what you want from life ~ and the swirling anxieties of youth that keep you up at night.”

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