Sick-Days – “Red Tulips”


Brighton (UK) quartet Sick-Days enamor with a pulsing rock sound, excelling with grunge-influenced vocal passion and shimmering guitar-laden hooks. Shades of The Wrens are enjoyably apparent throughout.

The quivering guitar tones consume alongside the ardent vocal escalations, with further engrossment upon the effervescent piano complements in the second half. An invigorating guitar solo in the final minute is an added cherry on top, as is the chilling multi-vocal emotion in the closing sequence.

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