Christian Black – “Driver”

“Driver” is a newly released track from Christian Black. The comforting, narrative-ready croon in the verses reminds fondly of Leonard Cohen; the suave guitar twangs and underlying acoustics serve as an accommodating backbone. Slight, hypnotic backing vocals join prior to the fervent escalation approaching the two-minute mark. The vocals’ added vigor here captivates, resonating alongside pulsing piano and driving percussion.

There’s an enjoyable contrast from the swaying verses and electrified chorus, yet the structural navigation plays seamlessly. The second half continues the enamoring qualities, bolstered by a brassy character and further vocal-driven development.

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