Luka James – “Can’t Admit It”


A catching new single from Brooklyn-based artist Luka James, “Can’t Admit It” blends surf-y vocal harmonizing with punk-pop influence for an infectious, summer-set sound.

The “wanna feel it but you can’t admit it,” vocal expressions — from the upfront ardency to the reflective pop lushness — plays with a dynamic, replay-inducing charm. The more conversational segment thereafter combines with lush vocal harmonizing for a gripping switch-up. “Can’t Admit It” is an accessible, hooky success with several enjoyable turns.

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