Keeka The Brave – “Purple”


A vibrant track that embraces a house-friendly energy amidst live instrumentation, “Purple” is a new track from Jacksonville-based artist Keeka The Brave. The artist’s third release this year, “Purple” plays with an enthusiastic glow throughout. Elon Hiers’ project excels in fusing downtempo rhythms with an array of tantalizing guitar lines and colorful synth movements.

“Purple” touts a melodic immediacy, even within its gradually developing song structure. Chilly synth stabs swell alongside a spacey synth pad, building climactically into tender guitar tones and shifty percussion. Dreamy guitar tones at the one-minute turn culminate in a thumping electro-pop flair, with dreamy backing vocal effects a minute thereafter adding further to the track’s compelling production. The guitars and synth tout an amiable interplay from start to finish, leading the way on this dazzling success.

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