Catching our ears last May with the synth-laden psych-rocker “Like This,” Dzasko succeeds with a spacey, synth-forward charm on his new track “Scorpio Rising.” Described as “a space ballad,” “Scorpio Rising” builds from gentle acoustics into an illuminating array of synths and psych-rock guitar glimpses.
A peppier rhythmic accompaniment, with pulsing bass and steady percussion, melds with acoustic guitars for a vibrant sequence past the one-minute turn. Dzasko’s vocals find even more satiating accompaniment at the mid-point, when spacey synth arps envelop alongside the shimmering instrumentation. “Scorpio Rising” continues to show Dzasko’s melodic strengths as a songwriter, here within a more synth-friendly sound that succeeds in its embrace of spacey soundscapes.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2023’ Spotify playlist.
