jacksonfalls – “takin me back”


Montreal-based artist jacksonfalls presents a heady mixture of psych-forward guitars and late-night synths on the memorable “takin me back.” The producer and guitarist, originally from Chicago, crafted the track in his Montreal apartment, and describes it as “a bittersweet journey through time.”

“Everything’s taking me back,” the vocals repeat amidst the buzzing synth touches and wailing guitar work. The sense of wistful nostalgia is palpable, and wholly resonates alongside the interacting guitars and synths. “takin me back” engrosses with its suave, hypnotic atmospheric construction.

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