A dream-pop delight from Japanese band drown in lavender, “Stuck/Salome” traverses with late-night guitar tones, accompanying a lushly understated vocal lead to start. The steady build crafts a hypnotic spell. A slight smattering of piano precedes an anthemic vocal rise and more prominent guitar textures. An added, soaring guitar tone past the two-minute complements wordless vocal enthusiasm, with excellent results. “Stuck/Salome” entrances effortlessly with a dream-pop sound that builds cohesively into a rousing rock-friendly sound.
“Stuck/Salome” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2021’ Spotify playlist.
