A lushly futuristic soundscape impresses throughout “Cathode,” a new single from Miami-based artist Die, Miami, Die!. Gentle synth chords and an underlying arp craft an enticing sense of momentum. Expressive, sporadic synth-bass lines emerge alongside a steady percussive pulse, as the lead synth heightens in pitch with dramatic effect. The two-minute turn enamors with a subdued reprieve, with rhythms fading in favor of prancing, emotive synths. A chirpy culmination thereafter fully satiates and drives to a stellar conclusion.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2023’ Spotify playlist.
