Pheelynx – “Can’t Get Away”


Gripping with its steady energy and angst, “Can’t Get Away” is an impassioned single from Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Pheelynx. A consistent bass line enamors alongside a range of alt-rock guitar distortion and trickling understatements. “Can’t get away, so you stick it to the next one,” the vocals sing with a direct charisma. “Tell me to my face, you can look me in the eye.”

The track proves commanding in its confidence and directness, with the “I don’t seem to mind,” sequence rousing into the “piece of mind,” bridge; this then excels into a compelling guitar-fronted sequence in the final minute. Pheelynx’s “Can’t Get Away” presents a riveting alt-rock/pop synergy with cathartic vocal ardency and a “tell me to my face,” call for honest introspection and commentary.

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.
