Safety Vapor – “I’m The Salt Dog”


Melodic summertime-set pop and moody post-punk intertwine on “I’m The Salt Dog,” a delightful new single from Austin-based project Safety Vapor.

Serene guitar twangs enamor to start, quickly joined by a bouncy bass line. The guitars scale back as lush keys and vocals enter. These elements converge melodically amidst lyrics reflecting a desire to chase a “summer day,” serving as an antidote to looming dark skies. A hypnotic and melodic success, “I’m The Salt Dog” is a quality showing from the project led by Nick Jamshidi.

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