Good Jester – “Clockwork”

A new track from Good Jester, the stylish success “Clockwork” bridges retro-minded synth tones with a sharp modern pop production. Synthwave-y synths craft a lush momentum alongside the restrained vocals, perking up into the hazy bridge and colorful central hook. The bouncy synths and punchy vocal dramatics impress here, as does a captivating conclusion that slows down the synths into a chilled-out, contemplative soundscape with devastating nostalgia.

The track is described by the project as “candidly speaking about struggling to find a broader meaning to existence.”

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