“A Feeling of Stillness” enamors with a lush and harmonious psych-pop glow, courtesy of Outer Surface, the Pasadena-based project of singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Gregory Kane. Nostalgic keys and debonair vocals cast ample mystique, with added guitars driving into the blissful, title-touting chorus.
The lyrical emphasis — “a feeling of stillness,” — pairs with the effervescent organs and concluding guitar twangs for a sensation that’s soaring and meditative, aptly so. The resulting “feeling of calm,” envelops the track as a whole, resulting in a fulfilling psych-pop journey.
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 Psychedelic Pop/Rock.
