A dazzling pop track from Tampa-based artist Class Vee, “Where Do We Stand” impresses with its fervent vocal hooks and pulsing synth-forward production. Atmospheric synth pads and a subtle arp craft a nocturnal soundscape; the lead vocals enthrall with a climactic escalation, leading to a wholly replay-inducing hook in the title-referencing refrain. The “going through the motions,” rise is especially catching, as the synths and vocal intensity rise. The final “where do we stand?” reprise packs a strong punch, the hook cementing itself at this point in my memory. Fans of hooky pop with strong vocals and nocturnal soundscapes should certainly seek out Class Vee’s “Where Do We Stand.”
“Where Do We Stand” and other memorable tracks from December can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2021’ Spotify playlist.
