My 98 Smile – “Golden Girl”

“Golden Girl” is an infectious rocker from My 98 Smile, a quickly ascending Nashville-based act crafting a no-frills brand of alt-rock. Pulsing guitar distortion and contemplative vocals build delightfully to the peppy bridge, culminating in the replay-inducing “there shoe goes, my golden girl,” chorus.

There’s a power-pop breeziness to the reflective vocal ooh-ing, with the punctuating guitar jangles adding to that charm. Showing shades of both The Strokes’ concise-cutting rock vigor and Teenage Fanclub’s soaring hookiness, “Golden Girl” is a stellar single from My 98 Smile.

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