TELAH! – “Winner”


Talented collective TELAH! craft a heady entrancement on their new single “Winner,” meshing eerie synth textures with jazzy rhythmic propulsions. TELAH! wrote the track during the peak of quarantine, yearning for connection, and describe the effort as “a feel good song about Sex and self confidence with basketball innuendos thrown in.”

“Stay for the night,” the vocals tempt as a funky bass emergence takes hold, with the ensuing key twinkling enamoring alongside the haunting vocals. “My time to win,” they sing, traversing into another synth-laden atmosphere with trip-hop nostalgia. “Winner” is a thorough aesthetic and melodic success from TELAH!.

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