Unknown Vagabond – “Falling Consciously”


A gorgeously contemplative folk expansive, fit for chilly winter hikes, stirs on “Falling Consciously” — a new track from Swiss singer/songwriter Unknown Vagabond. “Falling consciously, time will follow me,” hypnotic vocals meld alongside comforting acoustic layers. Gentle piano pulses arise into the more vibrant vocal work that ensues, complemented by trickling guitar brightness. “Don’t worry, reassuring vocals let out, vowing a reluctance of becoming “your dark cloud.” Haunting vocal wordlessness envelops thereafter, venturing into a second half with impactful rhythmic additions and a grippingly emotive expanse.

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