Seamlessly traversing between moody and hooky amidst an ’80s nostalgia, the track “Second Sight” dazzles in its array of synth-led effervescence and debonair post-punk murkiness. The new single from artist Cisco Bluff, “Second Sight” meshes a yearning lyrical prowess with a thoroughly compelling production. The funky bass movements and whirring synth momentum at mid-point make for an especially hard-hitting sequence, while the effervescent “sweet music dies,” chorus is magnetic with its arpeggiated synth lines and jangly guitars. I’m loving this one.
