Yaris Paris – “Doomscrolling”


Capturing the endless cycle of “doomscrolling” many of us fall victim to, “Doomscrolling” is an emotive synth-pop success from Vancouver-based artist Yaris Paris, featured last year with the track “LMK.” Melancholic key pulsations complement vocals that yearn to “make it go away,” referring to the endless cycle of bad news and ensuing feelings of dread,m inspired by scrolling through your phone. The “melt into your phone,” hook — with its melodic synth stabs and glistening punctuating arp — resonates with replay-inducing appeal.

“By writing this song, I captured the gloomy impact that my phone can have on my relationship with others and myself,” the artist says, noting inspirations of HOMESHAKE and Tame Impala.

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