A single from New Jersey-based collective KIDSNOT$AINTS., the heartfelt “Love, Always” struts a city-pop elegance with breezy hook-filled temptations. Island-set acoustics and twinkling keys meld into love-professing vocals, complemented by bursting synths into the delectable “every time I see you cry,” bridge. The twangy guitar push and panting vocals lead a captivating middle, before evolving into a lushly compelling finale.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2023’ Spotify playlist.
