A.C. Jones – “Sun”


“Sun” is a gorgeous folk single from A.C. Jones, an artist based in San Francisco. Lyrical reassurances resonate in conveying it “should all be fine,” when the day begins anew, with prancing piano complementing the caressing acoustics thereafter.

Comparisons to “the harsh light of the day,” is suggestive of introspection following a personal storm, meshing well within the meditative soundscape. Nick Drake and Elliott Smith inspirations are evident on this standout effort, which conveys a late-afternoon folk charm in its warming vocal layers and gentle guitar work amidst absorbing lyrical reflections.

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