people pleasing – “dumb days”


London-based artist people pleasing exudes a captivating brooding on new track “dumb days” — pining “I want to spend my life with you, even though we’re in the dumb days,” amidst a moody bass pulse and twangy, lonesome guitar lines. The eerie vocal character reminds fondly of The Auteurs’ Luke Haines, while the murky aesthetical appeal conjures a late-night vibe reminiscent of King Krule. The track grippingly captures the beauty of finding someone special, and sticking together, even as the “dumb days” and the world’s tumult persists around them.

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