supergloom – “Cut the Ties”


“Cut the Ties” is a captivating track from Los Angeles-based quartet supergloom, touting immersive growth throughout. The gentle guitar tones cast a hypnotic spell initially, gearing into heavier distortion rounding the two-minute mark. The track balances delicate dream-pop charm with intensifying alt-rock vigor, consuming thoroughly. More scaled-back vocals — “it’s not worth it, is it?” — craft a psych-friendly spell as the three-minute turn approaches, launching again into a soaring guitar-led resonance that develops into a satisfying conclusion. “Cut the Ties” is an engaging, versatile rocker from supergloom.

Per supergloom: “This song is about shedding the facade of being someone or something you are not and embracing who you really are.”

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