airhockey – “Something”


Thematically confronting self-doubt, “Something” is a memorable new single from Miami-based project airhockey. Spacey synth lushness assembles into a peppy bass line, as the vocals maintain a serenely contemplative state. “Shut up, you talk way too much,” the inner dialogue lets out, traversing into a submerged atmospheric intrigue that builds back crisply into the “I’m always trying to be someone I’m not,” admissions — complemented by a post-punk guitar feeling.

airhockey explain: “This song is about dealing with self doubt. Sometimes things aren’t as bad as you make them out to be.”

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