Kiki Diago – “Old Ways”


A psychedelic, soulful success from Kiki Diago, “Old Ways” captures the artist’s coming-of-age experience throughout the ’90s in Southern California. Hazy guitar strums and organ-laden textures form a suave introduction. Diago’s tender vocals reflect a state of loneliness and regression — “old ways, I’m back on my shit again,” — amidst the sweltering mix. The dreamy guitar swirls and soulful vocal charisma lead throughout this atmospheric, soulful success from Kiki Diago.

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