Public Health – “Understand Driving”


Building with captivating immersion, “Understand Driving” is a recent single from Public Health, the Philadelphia-based project of Alex Moxam. Thematically tackling “the creation of codependency in a relationship,” the track expands from eerily nocturnal synths and gentle bass throbs into an expressive guitar-led rise.

The structure proves reflective of the theme, from the aspirations to “keep you happy constantly,” amidst the synth-led arsenal to the “I don’t know how it ends,” acknowledgement as blaring guitars take hold. “Understand Driving” is a compelling piece of songwriting from Public Health.

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