Swelling from suave pop introspection into soulful heights, “Alice!” is a new track from Clyde Crooks. The vocals exude a suavely gripping allure, showing a variety of tonal deliveries by the 30-second mark, from nonchalant crooning to charismatic soul. The “won’t you,” hook approaching the one-minute mark stands out especially well, as does the slowed-down vocal production in the closing moments. “Alice!” is a stellar track from the elusive and promising Clyde Crooks.
This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2022’ Spotify playlist.
