“Love Me Don’t” is a single out today from Hullo, the project of Newfoundland-born musician Nicholas Bendzsa. “This song is about getting stuck emotionally in life, and not being able to let go of the past,” the artist explains.
“Every single night looks a lot like this,” the vocals exude amidst twinkling keys, driving into a delectable mixture of hazy synths, twangy guitars, and reflective bass thereafter. The “touch me, you can try it,” vocal pitch alternation combines with lusher synth tones, venturing into a bouncier charisma with loopy synths and brisker percussion. The track’s dynamic tonal growth and melodic synth/guitar interplay makes for a consuming production throughout.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2023’ Spotify playlist.
