Doc Emmett – “A Mile A Minute”


New Jersey-based artist Doc Emmett conjures a melodic, nostalgic rock appeal on “A Mile A Minute,” a success that enamors in both its starry-eyed synths and anthemic guitar lines. The expansive rock aesthetic proves stirring in its assembly of soaring vocals, a chugging percussive pulse, and glistening synths. The heady soundscape on this proves fully immersive, bridging ’80s nostalgia with a modern pop polish.

The artist describes the track as “an intimate journey through the depths of a troubled relationship accompanied by my love of 1980’s Synthesizers and drum samples.”

They continue:

“I remember this song came together super quick, I had just picked up an old Roland Juno 6 from a close friend and was tossing around a few different chord progressions between the keys and my guitar. I kept strumming back and fourth from C to A minor than back to G and A Minor, the lyrics and melody just came together super quick.”

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