Unknown Venus – “Dishes”


“Dishes” is a stylish pop success from Los Angeles-based artist Unknown Venus. The singer/songwriter and harpist crafts a smoothly grooving pop appeal throughout, culminating in an anthemic effervescence during the concluding hook — “I’m lying on the floor, tell me I’m beautiful.”

The “need your disapproval,” refrains throughout provide climactic intrigue amidst the grimier, nocturnal synth injections. The lyrics prove suggestive of relationship toxicity, where twisting truths and constant disapprovals result in some warranted introspection. “Dishes” is a hooky, heartfelt showcase from Unknown Venus.

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