The lead single from the forthcoming debut EP of Nottingham, UK-based artist Magenta Dusk, “Time” impresses with its moving synth-pop sound, bolstered at mid-point by guitar additions.
The soaring “holding on, waiting for a lifetime,” vocal beckoning stirs amidst the spacey synths, as lyrics feel celebratory in their push to leave the past behind. Lush guitar-touched additions in the ensuing verses drive seamlessly into another soaring, synth-starring escalation. “Time” is a harmonious, melodic production from Magenta Dusk that blends synths and guitars with nostalgic success.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2023’ Spotify playlist.
