Dakota Theim – “Wild Magnolias”


The title track from Dakota Theim‘s new EP, “Wild Magnolias” enamors in its expressive retro-minded pop bounce. Lyrically traversing from summer breezes to moonlit seas, the track excels in its playfully vintage synth pulsations and twangy guitars, accompanying a melodic vocal delivery from the Portland, OR-based artist.

“Watching the time as it passes me by, I’m just sifting through the daze,” Theim sings, prior to a bass-forward sequence with suave engrossment. The sky-looking contemplation proves absorbing amidst the funk-touched bass line, classic-rock guitar notes, and spacey synth infusions.
