Petrov, the Hero – “New Fortunes”


Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Petrov, the Hero releases his latest single, “New Fortunes.” a positive Beatles-esque seaside number that reaches out to the deepest darkest blue seas of our mind to calm the crashing waves of chaos and confusion.

A gentle and pondering melody delivers a laid-back and joyous simplicity. Petrov, The Hero does well to initiate a contrast between the sea and the sun within his fluffy and distilling vocal, and clean-bluesy riffs.

Giving us no particular questions, with no particular answers, “New Fortunes” is a track that wraps us up in a brief moment of solitude and comfort that sees us through the day. With a lush and lazy aesthetic, “New Fortunes” grants permission for us to kick back and bask in the sun.

“New Fortunes” steps away from depth in emotion while sailing the surface to create a sense of innocence when he says “What more can you do?” — prompting a realisation that “New Fortunes” is a song that just lets us be, whatever we will be.

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