Old Crush – “On My Mind”


“On My Mind” is a smoothly melodic single from Old Crush, the Berlin-based project of Josue Campos. The track evolves from lush keys into trickling guitar suaveness, with vocals admitting “I need to let you know you’re always on my mind,” as twangy guitars intertwine.

The “I wanna know,” sequence stirs with heavier bass involvement and an uptick in vocal enthusiasm; this offering re-appears in the final minute with a perkier synth-laden touch. “On My Mind” is a hooky showcase from Old Crush, balancing a debonair vocal delivery with enthusiastic keys, guitars, and synths.

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