With shades of Father John Misty and Cass McCombs, “Surgery” is a heartfelt rocker from Confreres, a project based in Chattanooga, TN. “If it’s a trick, tell me now,” the vocals plead into twangy guitar immersion. The “could this be another…” sequence showcases a rising vocal momentum, furthering a debonair rock captivation past the two-minute turn. “Surgery” compels in its range of suave introspection and anthemic rises, excelling in its resonating vocal work and production that effectively captures “the vibe of mid-century pop/rock.”
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
