Synth pulses and debonair vocals consume on the catching “The Best,” a new single from Los Angeles-based artist Andy Clockwise. The production conjures a New Order-esque pull in its blend of pop accessibility and moody synth-fronted constructions, complete with an unmistakable ’80s nostalgia. Splitting his time the past three years between Australia and the USA, Andy Clockwise is continuing to release singles that will comprise his 4-volume opus, War Stories. The first two volumes are set to release this year.
Bolstered by a music video that captures the late-night danceability of the track, “The Best” fuses stylish nostalgia and timeless pop hooks for an alluring sound. From the suave initial verses to the trickling synth/guitar interplay approaching the second minute, “The Best” is abound with memorable moments and a consistently melodic pull.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2023’ Spotify playlist.
