JW Francis – “Going Home to a Party”


NYC-based artist JW Francis shows a bouncy, hooky charm throughout his new single “Going Home to a Party.” Francis describes the track’s message as “it’s time you enjoy you,” a line reflected during the verses. Playful keys and gentle guitar pulses complement a steady vocal delivery, remarking “now it’s time you enjoy you,” in leading up to the infectious chorus, which shows a fond reminiscence to Phoenix with its sped-up vocal enthusiasm and colorful synth-laden interplay.

The self-appreciating themes are also throughout Francis’ upcoming album, releasing on January 27th. Shows in the UK, US, and Costa Rica will be put on throughout the year to support the album.

The artist was previously featured in 2019, with the track “Too Fast.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2023’ Spotify playlist.
