nightshades – “Maybe I Will”


Canadian band nightshades compel with a compelling rock sound on “Maybe I Will.” Lyrical visions of morning awakenings and riding on a carousel are complemented by a moody guitar traversal. The “if you will, maybe I will too,” sequence haunts with its emotively ascending grip, culminating in denser guitar textures and a steady rhythmic pulse.

The track builds with a climactic, melodic pull throughout, from the bass-fronted “building castles,” sequence to more expansive moments, showing shades of Radiohead in the escalating vocals and atmospheric guitars. “Maybe I Will” is a strong showing from nightshades, who first caught our ears with the single “The Out” last month.

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

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Rock.
