Floral Image – “Magic Train”

Norwich-based act Floral Image craft a compelling psychedelic spell throughout their latest single “Magic Train.” The sound of bustling train-tracks guide into mystical vocals and hazy, heady instrumental layers. The elements converge with a hypnotic allure, propelled by a mellow bass-y swing and fragmented guitar suaveness.

The murky rhythm section and lush vocal entrancement build with particular momentum in the second half, amidst guitar work that evolves from flickering understatements into bursting shimmers. “Magic Train” enamors with its atmospheric psychedelic sound, meshing rock and pop tonal inclinations with a seamless glow.

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