Overly – “Effortless”


The first single from promising project Overly, “Effortless” captivates with a gorgeously dreamy rock sound. Showing inspiration from shoegaze and dream-pop, the track swiftly incorporates lush vocals over glistening guitars and spacious percussion.

Icier guitar tones emerge past the one-minute mark, adding dramatic depth to the soundscape as the gauzy layers and intermingling guitars take hold. The two-minute mark sees a beautiful expansion of prickly guitars and warming distortion, as the vocals increase in ferocity while remaining lushly translucent. “Effortless” is an invigorating, atmospheric showing from Overly.

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

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Dream-Pop and Shoegaze.
