Pat The Riffer – “Paranoia”


The debut single from Pat The Riffer, ‘Paranoia” struts an eclectic, infectious flair with its mixture of synth-driven buzzing and funky initial guitar licks.

While the buzzing synths remain a reliable accompaniment, the dynamic guitars span from quick swipes into a rousing, anthemic push of distortion as the vocals heighten in pitch and emotion. Climactic structural unfolding and fun synth/guitar interplay are abundant throughout, contributing to this winning entry from Pat The Riffer.

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