Atlanta-based artist JOIE GREY impresses with a spacey charm on “SILVER SURFER,” meshing a futuristic pop feeling with R&B emotiveness.

“My generation wants to dance and move. With the current state of the world, I wanted to give people something they can unwind and get loose to,” Grey says about the track.

Grey’s mellow vocal presence converges seamlessly with starry-eyed electronic pulses, gradually bolstered by buzzing bass sensations. The stutter-y vocal effects approaching the one-minute turn plays with infectious appeal, especially when driving to the “running on rhythm,” hook and panting vocal effect.

Following the brief hyper-pop inclinations, tender guitars accompany a more subdued vocal presence. The glistening electronic familiarity re-emerges during the satiating conclusion, capturing the track’s dynamic tonal structure and melodic flow. “SILVER SURFER” is a memorable success from JOIE GREY, who wrote, produced, and recorded the track.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2022’ Spotify playlist.
