Susurrous – “Moonbeam”


“Moonbeam” presents a hypnotic dream world from Susurrous, the project of Lennard Vaarten, a singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer from Tilburg, The Netherlands.

The track’s playful twinkles amidst an otherwise nocturnal and murky soundscape play with inviting qualities, accompanied warmly by the serene vocal touches. The final one-third impresses with the percussive intensity and buzzing synths, crafting a satiating conclusion to this wholly atmospheric success. Described aptly by Vaarten as “a rainy night condensed in song form,” “Moonbeam” is a moving success with lingering charm.

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