Cole Blu – “Boston Story”


“Boston Story” is a new single from NYC artist Cole Blu, whose compelling sound melds art-pop, Kraut-rock, and experimental intuition. The dazed, eerie vocal presence plays cohesively amidst the bustle of guitars and synths, alongside a steady rhythmic pulse. Griffin Brown’s hypnotic percussion exudes a motorik beat, exceling the effort’s Kraut-rock nostalgia in its murky yet bustling beauty. An emotive, scaled-back outro closes with a dark mystique.

The track precedes Cole Blu’s forthcoming album, Torso, releasing early 2023. The album thematically focuses on a memory-driven narrative, with the aesthetic inspired by influences ranging from Talking Heads to Television and the Velvet Underground.

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

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Rock.
