Edie Yvonne – “Delusion”


Los Angeles-based artist Edie Yvonne meshes anthemic rock spirit with pop effervescence on new single “Delusion,” continuing a quick ascent for the 15-year-old singer/songwriter following the successful singles “Girl Code” and “Queen Bee.” Produced with collaborators Nicky Swedin and Cormac Liotta, “Delusion” enamors in its jangly guitar infusions and escalating structural charm. “We can play pretend,” the vocals suggest, traversing seamlessly into a bridge with even fuller jangle-pop engrossment.

The one-minute turn struts an infectious, anthemic rock vigor. Clanging guitars and debonair vocals guide cohesively into the suave disposition of the verses thereafter, venturing thereafter again into the jangly bridge and rousing central hook. The “god, she’s so delusional,” vocal snippets add to the palpable momentum into the chorus. “Delusion” firmly showcases Yvonne’s dynamic reach, compelling in both its pop-friendly lushness and invigorating rock-forward charisma.

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

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
