Hotel Josephine – “Half Heartedly Gold”


Infusing aspects of dream-pop with a ’60s pop reverence, “Half Heartedly Gold” is a recent track from Calgary-based duo Hotel Josephine. The lush acoustics, breezy vocals, and understated symphonic components converge for a dreamy, captivating success.

Pulsing organs and elongated vocals craft a dream-pop engrossment as the track progresses; flourishing effects add beautifully to the acoustical backbone approaching the two-minute mark. Described by the project as “a journey into the kaleidoscopic headspace of unassured love,” “Half Heartedly Gold” is a testament to Hotel Josephine’s timeless aesthetic and stellar, melodic songwriting.

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