Los Angeles-based band Vox Humana impresses with the expansive, dynamic “Stratosphere,” swelling from serene elegance into raucous beauty. Dreamy guitar pulses and submerged vocals cast an enigmatic allure to open, expanding into glistening guitar twangs that further a hypnotic spell.
Emotive guitars dash in with ardency, seamlessly falling back into the gentle guitar pulse thereafter. The track’s rises and descents compel strongly throughout, emphasizing the band’s strong knack for atmosphere and built-up melodic satiation.
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 Indie Rock.
