Reticent Alien – “Get the Picture”


“Get the Picture” is a passionate single from Reticent Alien, via the upcoming debut album Glass House Wilderness. The South Carolina-based project of singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Justin Wiles combines elements of rock, psychedelia, Americana, and noise rock for a sound heavy on emotion and melody.

The track’s acoustical frolicking and suave vocals remind fondly of Aztec Camera. The vocals escalate past the two-minute turn with wonderful vigor, complemented by shimmering, charismatic guitar work thereafter. A second half, with an amped-up psych-friendly glow, fully stands out as well. “Get the Picture” has me firmly anticipating the release of Glass House Wilderness next month.

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