Sebas De Varona – “Dark Adaptation”


A standout track from Miami-based artist Sebas De Varona, “Dark Adaptation” is a satiating psych-rocker that builds with tactful precision. Soaring organ-laden effervescence, twinkling piano, and steady percussive warmness drives to the rousing “shows in the way you are,” vocal outpouring. A bouncy piano drives to a charismatic conclusion, evoking a classic-rock nostalgia in the energetic guitar work gliding briskly alongside the underlying organs.

Described as “a tumultuous journey through the unseen parts of ones inner mind,” the track thoroughly succeeds in melding various psychedelic sounds, from roaring guitar-led frenzy to lusher piano-set bounciness.

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

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Psychedelic Rock.
