Premiere: Needy Beast – “This Is Not The Bottom”


Premiering today, “This Is Not The Bottom” is the infectious debut single from Needy Beast, reminiscent of Junior Boys’ stylish electro-pop — with an added guitar-laden bounce. The creeping synth-bass and playful guitar twangs lead into a calmly melodic vocal lead, gearing seamlessly into the catchy title-referencing hook. The bridge into the verses re-introduces the guitar-forward bounce, the track cohesively navigating an enjoyable line between synth-pop and glam-tinged rock. “This Is Not The Bottom” has me firmly anticipating what’s upcoming from Needy Beast.

The Los Angeles-based project is led by producer and multi-instrumentalist Adam Moerder, formerly of Mr. Dream and Fitness. The track comes via the upcoming Needy EP, releasing on April 15th.

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