A smooth, funky pop appeal shows throughout “Faded Jeans,” the latest single from Dutch pop band WATERLEAF. Taking inspiration from acts like Air, Daft Punk, and L’imperatrice, the track’s stylish production enamors amidst the “say the word,” refrain and fusing of hazy synth arps, suave rhythmic grooves, and debonair vocals. An amped-up synth buzzing takes hold in the second half, traversing to a synth-fronted charisma approaching the three-minute turn. “Faded Jeans” is a hooky mover from WATERLEAF.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2023’ Spotify playlist.
