Rykarda Parasol – “Above It All”


San Francisco-based artist Rykarda Parasol projects an ascending psych-rock marvel with new single “Above It All,” which resembles the sensation of soaring amongst the clouds. Crisp guitar tones and subtle synth buzzing complement a spacious vocal lead, lyrically tackling a toxic relationship and a cathartic breakthrough to move onward. The heady, hypnotic guitar tones remind fondly of Spiritualized, while the vocal presence emits a glowing harmony reminiscent of Wolf Alice, concocting a lovely meshing of past and present rock atmospherics.

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 Psychedelic.
