“Evening Sun” is a moody track from Swedish band And the Broken, the opener to their The Black and Blue EP. Chirpy guitar tones amidst the brooding post-punk bass line and vocals makes for a melodic contrast, fondly reminiscent of Interpol. The “souls for hire,” refrain melds nicely into an expansive guitar-based anthemic pull. The vocals reach triumphant heights in the final minute; the track impresses in its variety of tones, in moments like this, throughout — from dark murkiness to brightly infectious guitar-rock heights.
This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2022’ Spotify playlist.
