Just Kingsley – “These Days”


A hazily melodic success from Just Kingley and collaborating lyricist Truth Acuna, “These Days” engages with both lush acoustical charm and jangly guitar bounces. The title-touting initial vocals develop into sincere “I don’t know why,” expressions into delectably murkier territory, like the dreamy guitar pulses apparent in approaching the two-minute turn. “These Days” is a replay-inducing showing, intertwining dream-pop and garage-rock with hooky appeal.

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