Guitar twangs and playful synths adorn the melodic “So Much Fun,” a new track from NYC-based artist ironic the hedgehog. “‘Cause I’m having so much fun putting blame on everyone,” the vocals let out during the hooky chorus, anticipating the rapture with an amiable gaiety. Approaching the two-minute turn, whirring guitar jangles concoct a gripping sound that sounds parts country-rock and surf, with ’70s psych-laden nostalgia. “So Much Fun” is a slice of quality songwriting from ironic the hedgehog.
The artist writes: “This song is inspired by the feelings of guilt and anxiety that follow after indulging in the pleasures of being a nihilist, lol.”
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2023’ Spotify playlist.
