Calamari – “Say That You Want Me”


Spanish act Calamari compel on their new single “Say That You Want Me,” which meshes serene guitars and colorful synth reflections amidst a dreamy rock composure.

The title-touting yearning — “say you’re mine, it’s alright,” — engages amidst western-y guitar twangs, with the understated “it’s a tragedy,” ruminations building from understated guitars into the reprising chorus. The track touts a reassuringly melodic quality, sincere in its “not good at goodbyes,” conveying and melodic guitar/synth interplay.

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