Herbert Walker – “Holesome”

Herbert Walker‘s new track “Holesome” finds the Phoenix, AZ–based act excelling with engrossing songwriting and production; the track exudes a stirring, downtempo sound with soft-rock, singer/songwriter, and lounge appeal. The band, formed in 2016, mesh lush guitars, jazzy rhythms, and resonant brass to entrancing effect throughout this release.

The quaint initial guitar-laden pulses and vocal reminiscing are expanded upon gradually, with the haunting vocal elongation and trickling guitars driving to a more elaborate, brass-bolstered second half. “Holesome” is a consummate success from Herbert Walker, via their new album How to Enjoy, streaming below:

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