Joseph Lothian – “Neverfin”


London-based artist Joseph Lothian charms on his recent single “Neverfin,” which incorporates emotively lush vocals with twangy guitar and glistening key-laden subtleties. Per Lothian, the track is “inspired by the feeling, even if fleeting, of finding your place in a huge and complicated world, however small.”

Recorded in his Peckham, South London, the song’s quaint yet relatable lyrical emphasis plays endearingly amidst the fluttering guitar tones; the light and airy production is an apt choice for lyrical perspectives of finding your way in an intimating, daunting world. “Only half of the time, only half of the fruit is really mine,” Lothian sings, leading into a haunting shift past the two-minute mark with synth-laden chills. “Neverfin” entrances with this slight atmospheric shift, with the ensuing finale embracing the warmer embrace of the track’s initial spell.

“Neverfin” represents the first single release from Lothian’s upcoming third album, which is his first release via Instant Feel Recordings (the sister label of Aztec Records).

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