The Keymakers – “Forever”


Showing a soulful vein of house-inspired synth-pop, “Forever” is a new single from The Keymakers, the Los Angeles-based duo of brothers Rome and Red. The track’s late-night production is propelled by dazzling synth arpeggios and bristling rhythms alongside smooth, R&B-minded vocals.

The “can you stay here forever?” vocal rise plays with a ’90s soulful trip-hoppy vibe as the escalating synths stir with icy momentum. Hypnotic production lingers throughout, with the 03:20 mark seeing a lovely expansion of the synths and electronic textures into a late-night club-forward aesthetic. “Forever” is a resonating, atmospheric success from The Keymakers.

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