Buddy Wynkoop – “Relatable”


Portland (OR)-based quartet Buddy Wynkoop craft a tightly infectious sound on new single “Relatable.” The bass-fronted suaveness shows an initial entrancement reminiscent of Talking Heads, with gradual vocal escalations remarking “I cry at night until I feel fine,” alongside salutations and yearning to be “relatable.” A heavier, punk-forward blast of guitar distortion envelops in the exciting conclusion. “Relatable” is a blast of a track, with shades of Talking Heads and LCD Soundsystem.

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

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Rock.
