New Polarities – “Happy/Sad”


Swiss band New Polarities explore the dichotomy of emotions within a melodic guitar/synth intertwining on “Happy/Sad.” A lush vocal presence exudes a laid-back power-pop enamoring, set against twangy guitars and serene synths into the “feeling happy and sad,” central hook. A harmonious, replay-inducing sound persists throughout, with added guitar-laden ardency in the closing moments finishing this one off with a satiating glow.

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