A love song with heartrending mystique and a rock-friendly culmination, “Amaretto” is a new track from Brooklyn-based trio Gooseberry. Calming vocal harmonies prove reassuring, gently reminding “okay then baby cry,” during a hypnotic refrain with a starry-eyed daze. The ensuing “if you want to,” rousing injects the band’s rock-ready charisma; sweltering guitar distortion heats up, into a clanging intensity approaching the three-minute turn. “Amaretto” is a firm showcase in quality, dynamic songwriting from Gooseberry.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2023’ Spotify playlist.
