A thoroughly convincing debut single from Palomino Joyride, “In Due Time” conjures a dreamy charm in its nocturnal guitar jangles and escalating vocal presence.
The Portland (OR)-based project emits a nostalgic pull, reminiscent of early ’90s fusing of shoegaze/dream-pop and alternative-rock, somewhere in the vein of Smashing Pumpkins and My Bloody Valentine. Jonah Poole’s lead vocals masterfully shift from laid-back intrigue and enthused passion, especially upon the “did you even hear my voice?” climax. This hazily melodic track has me firmly looking forward to the band’s upcoming EP.
This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2022’ Spotify playlist.
