Pocket Knife Army – “Dancing Like a Cobra”


A new track from Dutch act Pocket Knife Army, “Dancing Like a Cobra” meshes autumnal, contemplative verses with a moving electro-pop hook, resulting in a replay-inducing success fit for the spooky season. A sly vocal tonal feeling and bass-fronted intrigue into the “lips so dangerously red,” vocal haunts provide a darkly atmospheric allure. The “dancing like a cobra,” hook excels with a danceable synth-friendly enamoring.

The “trapped in our old skin,” bridge soars with an especially compelling shift, emphasizing the project’s eclectic range. Daisy Rae’s confident lyrical outpouring combines with the stylish synth-pop production throughout. Per the project, the track is “about hiding your loneliness and anxiety behind an alter ego who is outgoing and sexy.”

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