Tea Leaf – “Rising Sun”


The debut single from new band Tea Leaf, “Rising Sun” conjures a nostalgic, funky rock appeal. Euphoric vocal spirit, twinkling keys, and excitable guitar pulses show ample momentum into the infectious “you can have it all, everything you ever wanted,” hook — pairing with the background organ and more debonair guitar tones for a replay-inducing build.

A magnetic guitar solo caps things off in satiating form. It’s easy to see why this timeless-sounding success is a crowd favorite when the band performs it live. We’re certainly anticipating whatever’s next from this promising act.

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.
