Depression, Baby – “Out of Luck”


North London-based band Depression, Baby compel on their new single “Out of Luck,” balancing grungy guitar jangles and dreamier hook-filled retrospection.

Bemoaning initial lyrics and understated guitars propel swiftly into a peppier bass accompaniment and steady percussive pulse. The swooning vocals and chirpier guitars past the 30-second mark plays with captivating qualities, quickly showcasing the band’s dynamic tonal sensibilities. A playful guitar line leads a clever bridge back into the verses. The thunderous escalation of rhythms, guitars, and vocals kickstarts the conclusion, falling gracefully into a dreamier retrospection in the final moments.

Representing a track from the band’s upcoming EP, the excellent “Out of Luck” was crafted in a converted warehouse studio with producer Benjamin Beheshty.

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

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Rock.
