The glistening, hypnotic “Here We Are Always” is a new single from Jacob Bills, an artist who recently relocated to London following 20 years in the NYC underground scene. The track precedes several upcoming singles and an album.
“Here We Are Always” touts a spacious, mystique-filled soundscape led by ethereal vocals and a shimmering dream-pop composure. A ghostly effervescence is chillingly conveyed by synth-laden textures, like the soaring around 01:20, that combines with the serene vocals for an atmospherically moving success. “Here We Are Always” intrigues throughout with a starry-eyed, spacious pop pull.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2023’ Spotify playlist.
