Johnny Simon – “Sculptures”


“Sculptures” is a new single from Swiss artist Johnny Simon, who composed, produced, and played all the instruments on the track. The sporadic backing vocal sampling and guitar-based emergence play entrancingly, especially as the lead vocals rise emotively amidst brassy resonance for a lovely hybrid of chamber-pop and folk. An atmospheric guitar-led chill around 01:30 develops into further passion from the vocals. The trumpet-laden conclusion strongly resonates with its yearning, solidifying the release’s standout production and compelling melodic direction.

This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of March 2022’ Spotify playlist.
