Michael Meaney – “Supersonic”


Lush synths and funky bass movements complement melodic vocals on “Supersonic,” a recent single from Los Angeles-based artist Michael Meaney. Guitar swipes and infectious vocal repetition adorn the replay-inducing, title-referencing central hook. “Stop playing your games,” the vocals commence the subsequent verses, shifting back into an array of light synths and funky bass suaveness. “You make everything so astronomic,” Meaney lets out in the chorus, re-emerging thereafter with seamless cohesion.

Written alongside Joseph Occhiuti (Ice Nine Kills), “Supersonic” is described as “a story based on wanting someone whose lifestyle is completely different from yours.” The track excels in its spacey, gravity-referencing initial verses and its catchy evolution into a stellar chorus, with a slight uptick in vocal excitement aligning beautifully with chiming guitar pulses. Even if one is “a sucker for your gaze,” differences can persist in life philosophies that can prompt a dissolution; “Supersonic” captures that phenomenon with an infectious, well-produced allure.

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.
