The latest track from Crawling Vines, “Best Part” is a tender, soulful rock success with nocturnal retrospection. Soulful guitar pulses and twangy punctuation surround a laid-back vocal presence, concocting a fusing of rock and late-night R&B with tempting immersion. These verses excel into a chorus with interacting vocal layers and an expressive guitar-laden lengthening, meshing a hazy psych-pop allure alongside the rock/R&B touchstones.
The project continues to impress; Crawling Vines previously caught our ears with the tracks “Vinyl on the Floor” and “Falling off the Monkey Bars.” “Best Part” continues a knack for balancing memorably melodic songwriting and moody atmospheric strengths.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2023’ Spotify playlist.
