Dylan Kight & The Nightbirds – “Good Trouble”


Described as “an anthem of resilience and optimism,” “Good Trouble” is the stirring debut single from Dylan Kight & The Nightbirds, a project that formed last year.

The “how does a moment disappear?” vocal beckoning ventures into a caressing, lush guitar-fronted section with ample intrigue. The verses re-appear thereafter with cohesive seamlessness. The production on “Good Trouble” is faultless in its rock/pop intertwining and soulful vocal charisma, with a vocal tone that reminds fondly of Gregg Alexander, and exuding a sturdy ’90s nostalgia in general with its balancing of hooky warmness and emotive lyrical relatability.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
