Tremolone – “Sideways”


Fusing melodic guitar work with downtempo electronica, “Sideways” is an alluring new track from Tremolone, an artist based in Pasadena, CA. Serene synth droplets and vague vocal adornments expand gradually; the wordless vocal quivering, lush guitars, and pulsing percussion converge with hypnotic enjoyment.

Lead vocals emerge with a seamless ease, adorned by quaint guitars into thumping percussion and the re-emergence of the wordlessly swaying accompaniment, reminding fondly of Avalanches. The track engrosses with its striking contrasts between guitar-fronted delicateness and electronic-minded expansion.

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