“Haven’t I Seen Your Face Before?” is the latest from Dr. Rocket, the solo project of Seattle-based artist Nick Carver. The self-produced success exudes a mellow psych-pop accessibility, centering around the title-referencing question alongside steady percussion and hazy synths. Guitar swipes add excitably at the one-minute turn, as the lyrics continue to wonder “maybe I saw you in my dreams.” Twangy guitar lines adorn thereafter into a catching synth-fronted bridge with escalating vocal fervency.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
