Showing a sound reminiscent of Snail Mail and Mitski, “Quarterlife” is a captivating track from The Famous Daxx. The London-based artist (originally from Munich) describes the effort as “the soundtrack to my Quarterlife Crisis, which resulted with me getting a cat.” The “soon I’ll be 25,” refrain affirms the age-related creep and introspection, ranging from a quaint remark to more soaring escapades, like the sweeping grandiosity past the one-minute mark. “I’m losing, and my head hurts every morning,” Daxx sings, continuing the lament amidst a series of melodic, darkly atmospheric guitar lines. The concluding ominous synth caps off the soundscape with stellar results. “Quarterlife” is a showcase in excellent songwriting and production from The Famous Daxx.

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