Moody post-punk and impassioned rock collide on the riveting “Different Light,” the new single from The Supplements, a trio based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Bass-fronted moodiness expands into a resonating vocal emotion alongside shimmering guitar lines, complemented by lyrics reflecting on the pains of love. The inspiration is personal; the track was “written at the beginning of a turbulent two year relationship for the band’s singer/guitarist and recorded near its end.”
“Don’t keep me waiting too long, all I want is time with you alone,” the vocals caution amidst the post-punk beginnings, traversing with blistering emotion into the “I want you to see me in a different light,” yearning, complemented by escalating guitar-forward vibrancy. The sensation of “chasing shadows all night,” amidst tumult makes for a moving sequence, thematically representative of a couple in the throes of conflict. “Different Light” is an emotive, dynamic rock success from The Supplements.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2023’ Spotify playlist.
