LAPÊCHE – “Mermaid Blues”


Brooklyn-based band LAPÊCHE show an anthemic and melodic rock sound on new track “Mermaid Blues.” Singer/guitarist Krista Diem delivers a consuming vocal performance, maintaining an alluring balance between the verses’ dreamier character and the eruptive rises, exuding a ’90s alt-rock nostalgia at points like the two-minute turn. Following the rise, crisp guitar jangles mesh with responsive vocal layers for a replay-inducing structural twist, further exemplifying the band’s stellar songwriting and compelling rock sound.

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