Patryk Kania – “Boating”


Belfast-based artist Patryk Kania crafts a dark-pop engrossment on the new track “Boating,” whose haunting, dreamy composure elevates with its melodic and emotional core. A whispered vocal tenderness and throbbing percussion complement a hazy synth pad, concocting a contemplatively nocturnal atmospheric pull. “I can get you out,” the vocals tempt into the synth-laden hook, sending chills with its dreamy vocal soaring.

The track allures in its heartrending appeal to escape a dead-end town, as one looks to a brighter future in a new locale. “Boating” thoroughly compels in its savvy alternation between subdued verses, reflecting a sense of yearning, and an ensuing chorus with bolstering synths aiding thematic temptations to start anew.

“Boating” was written by Kania, and produced by his long-time collaborator, the Florida-based Kevin Buster. The track represents the third single from Kania’s upcoming second EP, Gin Mill Club. Its title track was featured last month.

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

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
