BlissBliss – ‘Horizons’

Nashville-based act BlissBliss consume with a blend of soulful pop and eclectic rock across their new album Horizons. Led by the duo of vocalist Renee Bliss and drummer Lang Bliss, BlissBliss present a timeless-sounding spanning, from the soulful take on the classic Marvin Gaye’s classic “What’s Going On” to the group’s own soul-pop success “Your Number’s Up.”

“Your Number’s Up” opens the album with melodic immersion, showcasing the act’s soulful charisma. Glistening synths, fervent vocals, and bustling bass combine with a distorted guitar undercurrent for a palpable ’80s nostalgia. “Ain’t no second chances when your number’s up,” the central chorus exudes, catching with its reflective vocal segments and guitar/synth intertwining. “Do or Die” follows with a mellower engrossment, though quickly rousing into a spirited “live like the dreamers,” rise with a triumphant sense of perseverance; the opening one-two punch is a strong one.

Another highlight, “Talking Through Fences” captivates with sophisti-pop piano stylings and expressive vocal entrancement. The title-touting hook stirs with its interacting vocal layers, clamoring to “tear this wall down,” with empowering ardency. The funky bass line and dynamic vocal tones add to the stellar production. Horizons showcases an abundance of infectious songwriting, passionate vocal work, and soulful pop production.

“Talking Through Fences” and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
